Nebraskans who walk for 30 minutes at lunchtime on April 30th can help state trails. National Walk at Lunch Day, an annual event intended to encourage healthy lifestyle choices, will raise money for the Nebraska Game and Parks Foundation.
For every organization that registers walkers for the event, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska will contribute $20 to the Nebraska Game and Parks Foundation and Special Olympics Nebraska. The foundation will use donations to develop and improve hiking and biking trails.
The $8,000 generated last year led to the construction of new trails at Platte River State Park near Louisville.
