In 2021, Walk the Walk was Calumet's biggest program with 1,800 individuals from -- literally -- all over the world. They:
* signed up and paid a $25 registration fee (a donation to Calumet)
* created a TEAM with friends or joined an existing TEAM (we had 140 about TEAMs)
* reported their mileage to their TEAM Captain four times during th eight week program
* and asked at least one other person in their life to sponsor their walk with a gift that supports Calumet's important work with kids.
The goal was for the entire group of walkers to log 200,000 miles. As with most every goal that Calumet Nation has -- we sailed past it! By the time the last miles were logged, we were at 269,775 miles. Wow!
Walk the Walk 2021 Results
In 2021, one thousand eight hundred persons (and dogs!) logged 269,775 miles and through a variety of sources -- including 150 people who stepped up to serve as Angel Donors -- raised over $115,000. What a wonderful, successful program!
Lots of people reported that they would meet with others in area parks or trails so that they could walk and have conversation. Calumet is all about the relationships and relationships were being nurtured all over the place throughout the summer.
People got to know other participants as they reported mileage to their TEAM Captain and they also had the chance to connect with walkers all over through the special Walk the Walk Facebook group. The FB page (managed by Pat Mahoney and a group of fantastic volunteers) was filled with photos, reflections, encouraging thoughts, and uplifting comments.
As part of the registration process, people were able to choose a special Walk the Walk t-shirt or a Walk the Walk bandana (a popular option for the pooches!). Ginger and a team of Calumet staff members got about 1000 packages into the mail. It was a monstrously awesome undertaking.
Sign up for Walk the Walk 2022!
Registration begins on MAY 15 and continues throughout the summer.
