Walk the Walk 2022

Be part of a HUGE community of people walking for Calumet by signing up for Walk the Walk 2022. It's easy!

Everyone who registers (dogs are welcome, too) joins a TEAM. Some people will be part of a Congregataion TEAM while others will choose a Calumet TEAM. There are lots of great Calumet TEAMs like TEAM Campfire, TEAM Outdoor Chapel, TEAM Ice Cream Social, TEAM Jackman Ridge, and more. While registering, you pick the TEAM. Keep scrolling to learn more about TEAMs.

As summer progresses, you'll be contacted by your TEAM Captain who will ask you, "Hey, I'm going to report our TEAM's mileage so far this summer. How many miles have you logged?" Keep scrolling to learn more about Captains.

Get ready to help Calumet Nation walk lots of miles, raise lots of money, and be in great shape by the time the walk if over on August 31.

**Participant Goal for Walk the Walk 2022 -- 2500

In 2021, we set a goal of having 1,500 people as part of the Walk -- and we ended up having a whopping 1,800 people! Isn't that fantastic?

We hope that we can grow the participation level of people -- in large part -- by having more congregations sign on to have thier own TEAM as part of the Walk.

**Fundraising Goal for Walk the Walk 2022 -- $150,000

In 2021, we set a goal of raising $100,000 -- and we ended up raising over $115,000.

If we can increase the particpaton goal, we can very likely ALSO increase the fundraising goal by the same percentage. So -- let's give it a try!

**Mileage Goal for Walk the Walk 2022 -- 350,000 mileage

In 2021, we set a goal of logging 200,000 -- and we ended up flying way past that goal with 269,000 miles!

Together -- with everyone logging their mileage wherever they happen to be -- we can hit the 350,000 miles mark.


In 2022, everyone will be on a Walk the Walk TEAM. Lots of Congregations will have their own Congregation TEAMs (last year, there were about 70 congregations TEAMs). One person from the congregation will serve as TEAM Captain collecting miles periodically from all the TEAM Members ... and then the Captain will report the total miles of the whole TEAM to Calumet. It is wicked easy.

A Calumet TEAM might be a good option for people are aren't connected to a congregation. There are many fun options available. See the list as you register and pick a TEAM that seems like it's a good fit for you.

**Reaching the fundraising goal ...

* 2,500 Walk the Walk registrants @ $25 = $62,500

* 250 Angel Donors = $26,000

* 20 Leveraging Donors = $51,500

* 1000 small, $10 sponsorship gifts = $10,000

Many, many, many of these small sponsorship gifts came to Calumet in the way of an offering at congregations that had a TEAM of people who were Walk'ing the Walk. We think that congregations will do this again. Additionally, those on one of the many Calumet TEAMs will, we think, come through again by finding just one person they know personally to make a sponsorship gift in support of their Walk for Calumet.

**Details about TEAMs

Each participant is on a TEAM of one kind or another. Some will be on a TEAM with fellow members from church and some will join a TEAM with others from Calumet. And some will create their own TEAM made up of friends and/or family. Those wanting to create a TEAM will want to be in touch with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to get the new TEAM on the list.

When folks go to the Registration Page (going LIVE on May 15), they will be able to choose their TEAM during the registration process.


Each TEAM will have a Captain. We hope those serving as TEAM Captains in 2021 will volunteer to do it again. Congregations organizing a TEAM for Walk the Walk 2022 will want to identify one person who can serve as Captain. It's not a wicked hard job, by any means. But it's best if the Captain is good at sending, checking, and reading their emails.

TEAM members will be expected to log their miles four times throughout the 62 days of July and August. Mileage from July 1-15 will be submitted to Captains beginning on July 16. Mileage from July 16-31 will be submitted beginning August 1. Mileage trekked between August 1-15 will be shared with the Captain starting on August 16. And miles from August 16-31 will get to the Captain on September 1.

As the summer progresses, Calumet will hear from TEAM Captains who will be able to report their TEAM's mileage through a wicked easy Google Form (thanks to Amy Gillam O'Riley for her awesome leadership with this). Calumet will share the growing mileage total all summer long. The goal: 350,000 miles by the end of the day on August 31!


Calumet has a special Walk the Walk Facebook page which participants all over the place are invited to join. Thoughout the summer, there will be daily devotions, fun contests, photo sharing, and more. This Facebook group has been a fantastic way for people to get to know one another. We have a specific group of people led by Pat Mahoney with the job of managing the page and encouraging awesome connections -- a la Calumet Nation!

Registration starts on May 15, 2022!
