Hello Body Walkers,
Thank you. Thank you for reading this little blog, and for supporting Body Walk all these years. Body Walk has traveled the roads of MS since 2005. I joined the program in 2008, and in 2009, I started recording our travels for you here.
Body Walk is a unique program. There is only one exhibit like this in the state. A few other states have a Body Walk exhibit of their own, but even nationwide, it is a rare program. It has been a jewel of nutrition education and positive publicity for MSU, and for MSU-Extension. Over the years, we have seen children in every county. There are young people now who are finishing up high school or beginning their college careers who fondly remember when Body Walk came to their school.
All things run their course, and Body Walk has come to the end of its traveling days. The truck, a trooper for these past 10 years, has finally had the engine give out. Since the truck will not be replaced, the exhibit is in permanent storage. Below are some pictures from this last year. The blog will remain online so anyone can scroll through the past posts and see where it traveled and just a fraction of who participated across the state to make this program such a success for so long.
