Healthier Jupiter Walk Audit
This year you have the opportunity to do a 5K, while participating in a walk audit. A Walk Audit is one of the best tools we have as community members! A Walk Audit is a way to document how walkers (or pedestrians) and drivers use a street or intersection. They go through a checklist to see if streets are safe, comfortable, convenient, or not. As more community members collect data, Healthier Jupiter shares it with local leaders to advocate for safer and better streets and sidewalks. If we have safer sidewalks and streets, more people will be comfortable to go out for a walk or bike and get in their daily physical activity!

In addition to the Thin Mint Sprint registration, you will also need to register for the Healthier Jupiter Walk Audit

Virtual 5k Giveaway
Enter to win a health & wellness basket that includes facial treatments at BeWell Spa valued at $110, a one hour Signature Massage at Lane Spa valued at $82, and a one hour session at Body & Soul PT valued at $195!

Registered participants of the Thin Mint Sprint Virtual 5K who post a picture with their race gear on either Facebook or Instagram, tagging both @GSSEF and #ThinMintSprint2021 will be entered into our drawing. Posts must occur between March 5 - 7, 2021 to be eligible. The winner will be announced on Monday, March 8.
