Miles for Wellness Challenge 22: Walking the Lakeside Trails

Miles for Wellness Challenge 22: Walking the Lakeside Trails ran from Sept. 21 - Nov. 15, 2020 and encouraged state employees to stay active and connect online with teammates while completing a virtual trek to 12 of the country's most scenic lakes. Each location featured unique wildlife and some of the most stunning natural scenery in the world!

The Challenge 22 virtual trail began at Kerr Lake in Henderson, N.C., with stops at iconic locations like Crater Lake in Oregon and the Great Salt Lake in Utah, before wrapping up back in North Carolina at Lake Mattamuskeet.
