Gear Up for WALKtober with a Ton of Challenges!

We cannot believe that October is already here! It feels like just yesterday that we launched our community-wide walking campaign, logged our first million steps, and started sharing your inspiring stories from all over the county. Now look at us! Look at YOU!

You are one of the many reasons why Walk Cabarrus has become what it is. We genuinely can’t say “thank you” enough for every single step you have logged over the past few months. But there’s still work to be done and steps to be logged, so…

We’re launching WALKtober!

Individual Challenges

  1. Challenge 1:
    This one is simple. All you have to do is log your steps every day for 2 straight weeks and send a photo of your dashboard to You can log 1,000 steps or 10,000 steps; it doesn’t matter. All we want is for you to get up, get out, and log those steps. Once you do that, we’ll reach out to see whether you’d like a free Walk Cabarrus Fandana OR Phone Wallet.

  2. Challenge 2:
    For our second challenge, we’ll look to the leaderboard. But don’t worry, it’s not just who is on top. Instead, we will be rewarding the Top 5 Walkers in all three registration categories at the end of the month with a FULL Walk Cabarrus Swag Pack.

    If you remember back to when you signed up, there was a question about how much you currently walk. You had the option to choose between a) Not currently a walker, b) Walk 1-2 times per week, and c) Walk 3+ times per week. Whatever you chose when you registered is the category you’ll be placed in for this WALKtober challenge!

    We are only totaling up steps for OCTOBER, so your chance at an amazing swag pack begins tomorrow. Make sure you walk and log before the month comes to an end!

  3. Community Challenge:
    To reach our goal of #1BillionSteps, we need to have a HUGE October, but we know that you are up to the challenge! That is why we are asking everyone who has registered to have your best month yet so that we can have OUR best month yet as a community.

    What’s the challenge, you ask? Okay, we’ll tell you…

    We are challenging Cabarrus County to log 150 MILLION STEPS in October! Together, we know that our walkers are capable of amazing things, and reaching this goal would certainly be amazing. So, let’s do it!

Now is the perfect time to get back in the habit of logging steps and recommit to our goal of reaching #1BillionSteps. There’s competition, there’s the chance to win swag, and there’s amazing Fall weather. Seriously, you cannot beat that!

Please join us in participating during WALKtober, inviting friends and family members, logging steps, and more throughout the upcoming month. We could not have gotten this far without you, and we hope to go even further this October. Happy Walking!

So what’s your next move?
