Wat

Walk Across Texas! is an 8-week physical fitness program created by our own Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service that encourages individuals and teams up to eight people to track and monitor their physical activity with the goal of earning enough miles to walk across the State of Texas (833 miles).

Campus-Wide Competition!

WELLNESS WORKS! has created a campus-wide competition for all departments across Texas A&M University. The top three teams with the greatest distance traveled at the end of the 8-week period will be awarded various prizes.

  • 1st place team members will each receive a free FitBit Inspire and a WELLNESS WORKS! jacket.
  • 2nd place team members will each receive a WELLNESS WORKS! jacket.
  • 3rd place team members will each receive a WELLNESS WORKS! baseball cap.
