Hello from Lisbon


Hello from Lisbon, Portugal! We’ve walked 4,705 from Goodland, Kansas, to Portugal’s largest city and the home of the Monastery of Jerónimos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site completed in 1601. We’ll play some football – that’s soccer to us Americans – before continuing on to our next stop on our virtual trek around the globe, powered by the combined step totals of visitors to the “Hometown Teams” Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition in Kansas.

Join us on our virtual trek around the globe and add your steps to the total.  Click here to download a Walking Scorecard to track your steps or minutes exercised. You can even pick up a pedometer to count your steps at the Hometown Teams Smithsonian exhibition in in Atchison (on display through August 9), Perry, and Humboldt, and at participating Hometown Teams partner sites.

Why walking? It is the best way to get moving, according to this article from the Lawrence Journal-World. The article recommends keeping a journal, like KHC’s Walking Scorecard, to track your progress and stay motivated.

What sites will we walk to in Europe? Stay tuned for next week’s post and follow KHC’s walking progress on Facebook,  Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Happy walking!
