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. WIN participants traveled over 39,210 miles in 2019. So far this year, walkers have reported 18,625 miles for a total of over 181,452 miles since the program’s inception January 1, 2014.
