The American Public Health Association (APHA) has challenged Americans to collectively walk 1 billion steps by the end of National Public Health Week (April 2-8, 2018), a time to raise awareness of what it takes to improve everyone's health, from clean air to good nutrition to sound health policies.

The 2017 CPHA Step Challenge was such a success last year that we surpassed our goal by over 40,000,000 steps. We hope you will join us for the 2018 CPHA Step Challenge and help us take our step record to new heights.
