Discover the 8 Wonders of Kansas!

Walk Kansas would like to thank Marci Penner and the Kansas Sampler Foundation for their partnership this year. Challenge trails in the program feature the 8 Wonders of Kansas and more!

8 Wonders

The Kansas Sampler Foundation's mission is to preserve and sustain rural culture. The 8 Wonders of Kansas contest series was organized by the Kansas Sampler Foundation to inspire awareness of the beauty and value in Kansas, and to encourage travel. After the overall 8 Wonders of Kansas contest, the eight elements of rural culture were featured in their own contest. The contests ran from 2007-2010 and more than 100,000 people voted. Once the contests were concluded, the Foundation hired Harland J. Schuster of Morrill Kansas to photograph each of the 216 places in the contest. The result was a beautiful 272-page, 9 x 12" book featuring Schuster's images and Marci Penner's descriptions of 216 special places in Kansas. www.8wonders.org.

Celebrating Success!

I was more motivated to keep moving because of your program. It always gets me off the couch from a cold winter to move, move, move! I lost 10 lbs. and feel so much better. Thank you for the program. Keep it up! I look forward to it every year. Coffey County
