Last summer, I launched my Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days Challenge, a citywide effort to encourage people of all ages to add physical activity to their daily routines. Over those 100 days, participants logged more than 26,000 miles and joined dozens of walks throughout the city.
Starting June 1st, we’re at it again. Whether you walk on your own, in a group, or join one of the many community walks, remember that every step counts. Regular physical activity has been shown to help control weight and lower risk for heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and depression. Even better, it might just help you live longer.
So get up, get out, and join the movement. I hope to see you out and moving this summer!
