The University of Georgia Extension hopes to help Georgians shake off the winter blues and motivate them to get active and ready for spring.
UGA Extension recently rolled out a revamped version of Walk Georgia, a community physical activity program. Those interested can enroll in the improved Walk Georgia online program. Previously, UGA Extension only offered Walk Georgia during 12-week sessions in the spring and fall, but a $1 million, three-year grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation has allowed for an expansion, making the program available anytime.
Additionally, the website underwent a renovation, which expanded the program’s online resources and made the website, www.walkgeorgia.org, easier to use. Participants will still be able to use the website to create profiles and track their physical activity, but they also will be able to link the website to their social media accounts to share their physical activity goals, document progress and encourage other users.
