Petersburg and Wrangell have accepted the challenge to see who can walk more miles this summer. Since our communities are vastly different by population, the bragging rights will go to the community that has the highest average of miles walked per participant. Get walking Juneau, we certainly can’t let them beat us at our own game!
The more miles walked, the more miles you could win!
Alaska Airlines is matching every mile walked from all the participants in JNU, WRG, and PSG, up to 25k miles, that will be given to one lucky participant in the drawing on September 10. To be entered into the Alaska Airlines drawing, you must: be registered for Walk Southeast, walk a minimum of 150 miles, submit your Mileage Tracker by September 2, and be a resident of Southeast Alaska. Each eligible participant will receive one ticket in this drawing.
