Group walks planned

TIPP CITY — Join the Tipp City Sneakers and get walking. Tipp Monroe Community Services has continued and upgraded the walking club that was revived in January. The current goal for participants is to walk 100 miles between June 2 and Aug. 30. Each walker that turns in a completed mileage log will receive a t-shirt and will be automatically entered in a gift basket drawing on Aug. 30.

Mileage logs are available on the TMCS website,, when registering. There is no charge to join this club but registration is required. Visit for more information, to register and to print a mileage log. Logs are also available at the TMCS office.

Walkers can go out on their own or join a group. TMCS created Wednesday Walks to encourage walkers to try new routes. Each Wednesday at 8 a.m., walkers can join a group that meets at a previously designated location. Locations will be announced on the Tipp City Sneakers Facebook group page each week.
