Important Information

Cancellation of World Fit Walk 2020

Dear Students and School Leaders,
Dear WF Buddies and Friends,

because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, many schools are closing throughout the USA. Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel the World Fit Walk for 2020. Instead, we will focus on our software and ways in which we can make the World Fit Walk even better in 2021!
Stay healthy!

Gary W. Hall, M.D.,
Director of the World Fit Walk


World Fit® is a walking and exercise program for elementary and middle school students in grades 3 through 8. World Fit’s mission is to eradicate childhood obesity and improve children’s health and attitude towards fitness.

World Fit® is a six-week, school-based walking and exercise program designed to encourage physical activity for elementary and middle school students in grades 3 through 8. Olympians and Paralympians act as mentors and adopt schools in the program to teach students the importance of lifelong fitness and the Olympic values of perseverance, respect, and fair play.

Since the first World Fit Walk in 2009, 108,813 students from 103 different schools across America have logged in a total of 9,184,210 miles during the six-week program!
