Thousands of students from Fort Sill elementary schools, Soldiers, employees and family members from across post and the surrounding community walk, run and march up Fort Sill's Sheridan Road during the start of the first CG's Challenge-Western Miles Fitness Walk Tuesday.
Maj. Gen. Peter Vangjel, U.S. Army Fires Center of Excellence and Fort Sill commanding general, challenged area students to get fit. Students from most Lawton Public Schools, along with area schools including Elgin and Walters, took part during different parts of the day.
The walk is an idea that comes from the signing of the Fort SIll Army Family Covenant, which was signed one year ago here.
