2019 Step Challenge

February 22 - April 3, 2019

 

The American Public Health Association (APHA) has challenged Americans to collectively walk 1 billion steps by National Public Health Week (first week of April), a time to raise awareness of what it takes to improve everyone's health, from clean air to good nutrition to sound health policies. In 2017 we logged 70 million steps.  in 2018, 100 million. Join us as we reach for 130 million in 2019.

 We are 3rd healthiest  among all states.  Can we do better?  Can we surpass Mass. (#2) and wave bye to Hawaii to become #1? How can we get there?

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, recommends this strategy to boost  CT health: “Foster social connections within communities and cultivate empowered and civically engaged youth.”

What better way to accomplish this than to organize Step Challenge teams comprised of members that support each other physically and mentally  as they walk together? Our CPHA Mentors on Request (MOR) connect with the next generation by talking to students about public health concepts and careers as they walk, furthering the recommendations of RWJF.

Join us for  the 2019 CPHA Step Challenge and help us take our step record to new heights.
