MORE THAN 40 Middlebury area walkers gathered this past Tuesday on a 30-day campaign to walk a mile a day. The initiative is a cooperative effort by Porter Hospital, RISE Vt and Neighbors, Together to not only get daily exercise, but also to realize how close to downtown shopping area parking lots are.
MIDDLEBURY — On Tuesday, July 16, over 40 people gathered in the Mary Hogan parking lot to go on an evening stroll. But this was not just any walk; led by President of Porter Medical Center Seleem Choudhury, participants walked to launch the 30/30 Walking Challenge.
Specifically, the goal is to walk 30 miles in 30 days.
That is the commitment Neighbors, Together is asking of Middlebury townspeople.
Between July 16 and Aug. 14, participants will walk at least one mile every day, and record their total mileage in booklets available at Ilsley Public Library and the National Bank of Middlebury....
