Jim Wells County kicked-off Walk Across Texas on Saturday, Feb. 13 with a stroll through downtown Alice.

Residents of JWC gathered and walked before the JWC Farmer's Market began.

Walk across Texas is a fun and flexible way to exercise. Teams are made up of a captain and seven friends, neighbors, coworkers or family member of all ages. Once the teams are selected the team can walk, jog or bike to complete 830 miles in eight weeks.

Walking together or individually, outside or at a mall, gym, any way that fits the teams schedule and lifestyle. Miles should be tracked and reported to the team captain weekly.

Zumba instructors demonstrated their skills as participants joined in the exercise.
