In celebration Sons of Norway's 125th anniversary, Polar Star is participating in a Virtual Walk from our meeting site in Montgomery IL to Minneapolis MN (401 miles), and then on to Hamar Norway, location of the 2020 International Convention (3984 additional miles), for a grand total of 4385 miles. You can count all kinds of activity such as walking, biking, swimming, and even miles tracked on your smart phone! If you have any record of your activities, you can count it back to November 1st. 
NEW: Since the August International SOFN Conference in August has been postponed due to the COVID virus, keep moving with a new challenge! The deadline is now December 15th for our virtual walk. We already reached the miles to Norway, and have even walked back home again. NOW We are NOW walking back to Hamar, Norway again by way of Minneapolis! Keep turning in your monthly miles to Jerri Lynn!
