Start of our Spring Challenge
EVERY MILE COUNTS!
And we’re back! Are you ready to go?
Welcome to the 2022 AWCH Spring Challenge: Every Mile Counts
Every Mile Counts is a virtual fitness journey across America. Collectively, our logged steps, bike rides, hikes, swims, and runs will move a virtual token over a path to visit the US national parks, monuments, and seashores. It is fun, encourages everyone to move, and, at the same time, we will be exploring the beauty of America's national park system and learning about the historical, ecological, and social significance of these landmarks.
Our Goal? To "move" as many miles as we need to get us from the Dulles International Airport in the nation's capital to 16 national landmarks across the US -- from sea to shining sea. Which team will be the first to make it to Assateague Island National Seashore? When your team arrives at a milestone, we will send you information about that site, and hope to receive pictures of a previous (or current) trip there from you. Next stop: Fort McHenry National Monument … and the trip continues. Can we make it to Point Reyes National Seashore in California? Or even all the way to Los Angeles International Airport -- so that we can get on a plane to Hawaii? Wouldn't that be a great place to celebrate Fourth of July together! Let's get started!
Who: AWCH Members (free!), Friends & Family (Adults: €10, Children 5-17: €5), Ukrainians, who you know personally and are fleeing the war: (free! Please contact us.)
When: May 1 – June 30, 2022
Where: My Virtual Mission platform
Why: To move, to connect, and to enjoy the US National Parks, National Monuments, and National Seashores.
Teams: Our membership has been divided into four equal teams – basically the same as last year. The teams are geographic clusters of the Hamburger Helper groups to encourage local meetups. Friends and family will be placed on the same team as the member who referred them unless otherwise requested. Every endeavor will be made to keep the teams the same size. Please contact us if you have a special request (firstname.lastname@example.org.)
There will be a friendly WhatsApp group for each team to cheer each other on. Everyone is welcome – just let Hannah know if we should add you (or delete you) from last year’s group. You may add your friends and family if you choose.
Feedback is always welcome and will be taken into consideration for next year! (Hannah B at email@example.com)
