The Walk Across Texas! program encourages people to develop a habit of regular physical activity.
Teams and individuals walk - or run, dance, garden, swim or do any other form of exercise - for an eight-week period.
Each 20 minutes of exercise counts as one mile. At the end of that time each team's or person's total mileage is added up.
A quick look at a map of Texas shows how far everybody would have gone if he or she had been walking in a straight line.
