- Chalk the Walk
Grab the kids and head outdoors for 1 mile of fun. The MWR Sports and Fitness team has marked a sidewalk trail with hopscotch games and other chalk challenges around Blue and French Fields. This route is kid and stroller friendly.
There are variety of chalk stations along the route. Parents and kids can take a break, write a message, include your own challenges or draw pictures. If you choose to add to your own drawings and challenges, please use the hand sanitizer before and after using the chalk.
If you are on Facebook or Instagram, tag Fort Benning MWR and use hashtag #BenningAdventures in a photo of your creations for a chance to be featured!
While you’re on your walk, don’t forget to take a picture and tag #BenningAdventures
