Our club was established in August of 1997 under the auspices of the American Volkssport Association. We are a nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage everyone, regardless of their level of fitness, to get out, exercise and have fun doing it. Our walking activities are open to everyone.
Our yearly dues are $10 for a single person and $15 for a family. While it is not required, we recommend that each member keep record books in which their achievements may be noted. Normally these are $6, each for the Distance and the Event books.
As an incentive, we offer New Walker Packets for $5, that include BOTH books and coupons that allow you to walk your first three events- normally $3 each for free using the included coupons - As you fill each book, you may mail them in for an award of a certificate, patch, or pin. Incentives and awards are an important part of any successful endeavor.
In addition, we offer a New Walker Packet at no charge to New Walkers who join our club. As an additional incentive to walk with us, prior to becoming a member, you are welcome to walk your first 3 group walks free. This will enable you to see if our club is what you’re looking for.
