Colleen Gibbons, of Traverse City Area Public Schools and Interlochen Community Schools, marks Mileage Club cards Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at Interlochen Elementary School. Each lap taken in the school, a quarter mile, is marked off on an individual's Mileage Club card. Since winter of 2007 the group has walked the equivalent of the Earth's circumference, approximately 24,900 miles. Destinations are chosen for the walking program and the distance from the chosen location (this year it's Nome, Alaska) and Interlochen Community School is the Mileage Club's goal for distance walked in the school.
