Special ProgramsSpecial Programs are usually offered by clubs and usually offer a award when completed. These programs are optional and require a fee. You use the same stamps that you use for your Event and Distance books for those walks that qualify for the special program. The programs, when available, will be shown on this page. There are two Special Programs shown on this page, Walking with Woody is a California Only special Program and University If your California club has a Special Program, please let me know and we can see if it can be added to our site.
