About the Program

Earn chances to win prizes for you and your Council on Aging!

Lace up your sneakers! The Walk Massachusetts Challenge is back and better than ever. Your participation helps your local Council on Aging win money for fitness programs and gives you the chance to win one of several prizes.

The challenge runs May 1 to October 31, 2023. During this time, you will have chances to be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Visa, $25 Amazon or $10 Dunkin’ gift card. The more you walk, the more chances you have to win. Reach each milestone and receive a total of four entries. By completing the challenge, your local Council on Aging/Senior Center gets a raffle entry to win up to $1,000 for fitness programming.

Register on this site and choose one of the challenges based on a Commonwealth of Massachusetts fun fact. Choose based on your current 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, at home or in the neighborhood, on a track, on a treadmill, at a park, at a mall, with family, with friends, with your dog or alone.

Track your walking (we recommend daily or weekly) between May 1 and October 31.

Complete milestones and get entries to win. The more you walk, the more entries you get – it’s that easy!

Councils on Aging will receive an entry for each person who completes the challenge. Sixteen Councils on Aging will win in all, and one lucky Council on Aging will win $1,000 for future programming!

The Walk Massachusetts Challenge is brought to you by the Massachusetts Councils on Aging and generously funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts.
