Help CPHA Reach 30 Million Steps by April 8
The American Public Health Association (APHA) has challenged Americans to collectively walk 1 billion steps by the close of National Public Health Week (April 3-9, 2017). The CPHA MOR would like our state to be the healthiest state by April 8th by signing up as many CT walking teams as we can.
With a population of just over 3.5 million, Connecticut's fair share is 10 million steps of APHA's goal of 1 billion. But CPHA believes that WITH YOU we can easily reach 30 million steps and Make CT the Healthiest State by April 8.
