Together, let's take the Billion Steps Challenge!

APHA’s Billion Steps Challenge makes it easy and fun to promote good health and physical activity in your community. We have tools to help you organize a walking challenge in your neighborhood, workplace or congregation, or you can use our sample marketing materials to invite your whole community to join! No matter how big or small, we make it easy for you to get people moving. To help you successfully get moving, we've partnered with MoveSpring to give Challenge participants free access to their fitness-tracking platform.

The Billion Steps Challenge supports broader health promotion efforts and the intersections between community design and active living, such as 2015’s "Step It Up: The Surgeon General's Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities." We hope you’ll join us in advocating for programs and opportunities for all people to engage in physical activity in their communities.

The Challenge begins Jan. 1, 2019, with a goal of reaching more than 1 billion collective steps by APHA's National Public Health Week celebration the first week of April. We hope you'll join us!
