Last day to register for Walk Georgia

It's your final chance to register for Walk Georgia, a statewide fitness program designed to combat problems like obesity.

Organized by the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension, the effort is open to both individuals and teams of four. Participants collect virtual "miles" simulating a walk across the state.

It's all done through a Web site -- www.walkgeorgia.org -- where you not only sign up for the program, but also log exercise that is electronically converted to miles.

Registration closes today.
