Winter Walk Challenge | 511 Contra Costa

Winter Walk Challenge

The Winter Walk Challenge will be back in January 2022!

We received nearly 1,000 fantastic photos from every corner of the county as our 2021 Winter Walk Challenge participants explored their neighborhoods on foot. For 12 weeks, we asked you to find rainbows, outdoor art, wildlife, spring in bloom, and much more. Thank you for taking on the challenge.

Together, we traveled at least 15,000 miles and burned a minimum of 1.2 million calories. Driving those same 15,000 miles would have produced 13,500 lbs. of CO2, the main greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. Our small, individual actions really add up when we work together as a community.

Winter Walk Challenge is free, fun, and open to all ages. Join us again this coming winter!
