CONNECTING PEOPLE, NATURE AND OPPORTUNITY

Here is what one parent says about Spring Break Netwalking:
 
"The kids were so invested each day we walked with you. Each day when I went in their rooms to wake them up, I left it up to them. I said, 'Do you want to go again?  If so, get up and get moving.' And, believe me, each day they popped outta bed and were ready in record time. It was so nice to have something to do with them that was interesting, fun, and exercise all in one."
