PEPPERELL — There’s still time to join the Walk Massachusetts Challenge and help raise money for the Albert Harris Center.

Those who decide to lace up their sneakers and help earn money for the Albert Harris Center could possibly win a $50 gift card. Participation will help the senior center win money for fitness programs.

This year’s challenge is open to everyone in Massachusetts age 5 and older. Walking can be done with family and friends or on your own. However, the Albert Harris Center asks those under age 60 “sponsor” an older adult — there is no fundraising involved but you will be walking on behalf of a parent, grandparent, neighbor or friend.

The challenge started on May 1 and lasts until Oct. 31. As you complete the challenge, you are entered into a drawing for a $50 Visa gift card, a $25 Amazon gift card or a $10 Dunkin’ gift card. For each person who completes their challenge, the Albert Harris Center gets an entry to win up to $1,000 for use with fitness programming. The more who walk, the better the center’s chances.

To get involved, visit walkmachallenge.com and choose a challenge based on a Massachusetts fun fact.

It could be from walking 88 days during the challenge period to walking 126.5 miles to walking 362,000 steps.

Choose your challenge based on your walking abilities, or challenge yourself to reach a higher goal. Be your own guide as to what you can do. You can walk inside, outside, on a track or a treadmill — wherever you want.

Then, enter your walking on walkmachallenge.com until Oct. 31 and you’ll be entered to win at each milestone (five chances to win total).

For more information, call Albert Harris Center Activities Director Marisa Graham at 978-433-0326.
