Civil Air Patrol "Walks" to Mars

The Board of Governors and national leadership are interested in the health and well-being of all members and their families. Healthy volunteers are the foundation for CAP mission success.

Accordingly, CAP has launched a national challenge to "collect" the distances necessary to reach Mars from Earth — 33.9 million miles. The year-long challenge from CAP’s National Task Force for Wellness and Resilience provides a unique and fun way to motivate all of the organization’s personnel, not just membership, to participate in a wide variety of popular sport and fitness activities on a regular basis.

While walking is the baseline activity,all fitness activities earn steps and distance credit based on a scientifically derived scale of effort expended during the exercise.
