Million Step Project
What is it?
This is the first of our county wide ”Take it On!” solutions aimed at a preventing and combating Diabetes in our community. This effort is sponsored by People Centre’D on Diabetes and is part of our mission of Diabetes awareness and promotion of wellness in our community.
What is the goal?
To get many people to complete a million steps at one time and bring awareness of our organization and our mission to the community.
Why "Million Steps"?
Million steps a represents a goal (minimum) that everyone should strive to attain in one year.
If you walk 4000 steps in a day and do it 5 days a week, that equals 20,000 steps. If you do that for 50 weeks, you have the goal of 1,000,000 steps!
4000 steps = 10,000 feet (approx 2 miles.)
For a lot people, this goal is readily attainable with small changes in your every day routines. But to make it An Event (and much more enjoyable), we're suggesting doing this with some friends!
