    Invites you to a Virtual "Walk Around Mars" be it our town of Mars or our goal of walking a lap around the Planet Mars.  One lap around the planet Mars is 13,263 miles.....that's a daunting goal for one person but not as a Community.  If 500 people agreed to walk 26.5 miles during the 6 weeks of our event, then as a Community we will reach our goal of Virtually walking around Mars!

    Join us and help us raise money to Support the Students and Teachers of the Mars Area School District
