Winter Walk Challenge | 511 Contra Costa

Winter Walk Challenge

Congratulations to our Grand Prize iPad winner, Belen from San Ramon!

We received nearly 1,000 fantastic photos from every corner of the county as our 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 next year!
