There are nineteen “Walk Across Tennessee” teams in Cannon County this year striving to log 500 miles of physical activity in five weeks starting August 5.  Participants record miles individually and keep track of their total for the week.  It is turned into the team captain who gives the team total for each week to the UT Extension Office.  Weekly totals will be shared on a map of Tennessee located at the UT Extension, Cannon County Office.  From Memphis to Nashville it is 210 miles, 388 miles to Knoxville and 500 miles to Bristol, TN.  Good luck to all of the teams and whether or not they make it to 500 miles they are all being active which is good for their health.
