Cobb County, GA--  (submitted by Cobb Communications)  The successful fitness program Walk Georgia is back and residents are encouraged to participate and move more for healthier lives. 

Walk Georgia is a free eight-week program sponsored by University of Georgia/Cobb County Cooperative Extension. The program is designed to increase physical activity in a fun, community-oriented way. Participation is available as an individual or in teams of four. Participants can log exercise virtually at walkgeorgia.org and the program translates activities, such as aerobics classes, walking the dog and a pick-up game of basketball, into "miles." Through the online map, participants can electronically chart a course as they "walk" across Georgia, learning interesting facts about the counties visited.

This will be the only Walk Georgia program held this year. Online registration for the program is open Feb. 20-March 9.

Actual recording of physical activity is March 6-April 30. For more information, visit walkgeorgia.org or call Cobb Extension at 770-528-4090.
