Walk to Jerusalem
Sunday, February 10, 2013 at 12:00 AM (EST)
Sign up to participate in the Walk to Jerusalem! The goal is to accumulate enough miles church-wide to reach the destination of Jerusalem by Easter, starting from Winter Park, FL at the beginning of Lent – about 7097 miles. Miles along this imaginary trip will be accumulated as physical activity is documented from Feb. 10th to Mar. 24th.
Sign up as an individual but we recommend you sign up as a team. You can turn in your mileage each week at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the church office using cards that you can pick up in the office or in the courtyard on Sun. Jan. 27th or Feb. 3rd.
Here is how you can accumulate miles:
Walking (using pedometer – free pedometers are available)
2500 steps = 1 mile
Moderate activity (walking, biking, swimming, resistance training, doubles tennis, other aerobic equipment)
20 minutes = 1 mile
High intensity (running/jogging, singles tennis)
15 minutes = 1 mile
Weekly emails will be sent out to share our progress along the journey.
