Looking to be more active in 2022? Join Clemson Cooperative Extension’s Rural Health Team Program, WalkSC, to reach your physical activity goals this year. WalkSC is a 12-week walking program based around personal step counting.

WalkSC includes weekly interactions with a Clemson Extension Rural Health Agent via email. These emails provide “weekly walking challenges” corresponding to a section of the South Carolina Palmetto Trail. Meet your step goals every week and you will have virtually walked the 500-mile Palmetto Trail spanning from upstate South Carolina to the coast, all while learning about yourself and the state!

WalkSC is self-paced: get your exercise in when it is most convenient for you! The only requirements from us are completion of a pre and post program survey.

Steps can be counted with smartphone apps or wearable devices such as a Fitbit, smart watch, or pedometer. Once enrolled, the Rural Health Agent can assist you in tracking your steps if you do not have access to any of these options.

 We offer multiple dates throughout the year to join! If interested, register here:

Ellie Lane, Health Extension Agent
