Get Fit Franklin along with Franklin Mayor Ken Moore will host a virtual Walk MOORE with the Mayor event on Saturday, June 27 from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. We are encouraging participants to get out in their neighborhood or around Franklin to get some exercise, while still practicing social distancing. If you are not able to walk in your neighborhood, we suggest going to one of the many Franklin parks that are now open, but please practice physical distancing.

If you are able, go out in your neighborhood and decorate the sidewalks or parks with sidewalk chalk to promote our virtual walk, or create a space for those in your neighborhood to “walk silly,” complete an exercise challenge or series of jumping jacks.

We will be giving away prizes to three winners. Prizes include a Franklin hat and a Franklin t-shirt to whoever walks the longest distance and whoever walks the most steps during the event. We will also be giving away a $25 Twine Graphics gift card to whoever has the most creative sidewalk chalk art. We are asking those that participate to share images of you walking around Franklin or in your neighborhood to the Virtual Walk MOORE With The Mayor event page or to your own social media pages, tagging Get Fit Franklin in your posts.
