BISMARCK (UTN) - In conjunction with the Measuring up to Good Health Program, the Summer Walking Club had 25 active members. Each walked at least one mile per day between May 18 and August 10. One mile is equivalent to one time around the outer road on campus, or 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill. They recorded their time and distance at the designated sign-in areas to keep track of their miles.
