It’s time for the Project AWAKE’s newest event - Making Summer Count 6-Week Walking Challenge. Sign up today for this six-week walking challenge that begins on July 1! The challenge aims to get people outside and to enjoy the outdoors while supporting the maintenance and improvements to the Newton Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. The event lasts through August 12 and participants will track their steps each day and report them for a chance to win some awesome prizes.

Participation is simple - sign up, make a $20 donation, record your steps, and report them weekly! Each week the top performer from each category will be recognized on the Newton Arboretum & Botanical Garden’s Facebook page. Each participant’s name will get entered once when the donation of $20 is received. Another entry occurs each time a participant submits their steps for the week through a Google Form. At the end of the challenge, Project AWAKE will randomly select a winner in each category to receive a prize.
