Join Team SpinSheet in Walking the Watershed for CBF

Team SpinSheet Walks, Cycles, and Paddles for a Healthy Chesapeake

During this time of uncertainty and the Covid-19 pandemic, outdoor exercise has been recommended for good health, so Team SpinSheet has kept up our usual routines: walking, jogging, cycling, and of course, paddling on the Bay. When we found out that the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) launched a Walk the Watershed campaign, it seemed like a perfect fit.

Along with other new virtual initiatives to keep lovers of the Chesapeake connected to its ecosystem, such as “Bringing the Bay Home” and “Learn Outside, Learn at Home,” CBF created Walk the Watershed. The idea is to get outside, exercise, and create a team to walk 200 miles—the length of the Chesapeake—as a virtual fundraiser for CBF.

Team SpinSheet PropTalk has set a lofty, yet attainable, goal of walking, jogging, cycling, or paddling a combined 800 miles by June 30. As of May 28, our team had raised $985 of our $2500 goal and were on track to reach our mile goals.

We welcome SpinSheet readers as team members and donors. Registration is free and easy to navigate. Click here for Team SpinSheet’s page on which you may join our team or donate to our cause. You don’t have to walk the full length of the Chesapeake! Any mileage goal that suits your fitness level and schedule works.   

For more than half a century, CBF has led a landmark effort to save the Chesapeake Bay, a national treasure on which the health and wellbeing of nearly 18 million people and 3000 species of plants and animals throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed depend. CBF educates tens of thousands of people each year, advocate for better public policy, hold governments and polluters accountable, while performing essential hands-on restoration.
