Well, you don't have to actually walk 500 miles around the state--this program is actually alot more fun than that! Registered participants will convert a variety of activities into "miles walked" and track their progress on an interactive trail map of Maryland. Along the way, you will discover cool facts and information about Maryland, and be able to access a calendar in case you want to explore the actual sites. Walk MD encourages you to be more active, and eat healthier. If you are interested in learning more, or want your name put on an interest list for the program starting date announcement, contact Karen Aspinwall at
