Sponsored by the Newport Ruritan Club, Walkers in Newport is a local walking effort where any individual can walk anywhere at any time. Individual miles are reported weekly and the aggregate miles are used to simulate travels both domestic and abroad. In honor of its wonderful corporate citizenship here in Giles County, walkers are currently simulating journeys to different Celanese locations around the world. Around 50 contributors post miles each week. So far this year, walkers have reported 32,913 miles for a total of over 195,741 miles since the program’s inception January 1, 2014.
