Use "APHA2019" as the organization code for APHA's Billion Steps Challenge.

MoveSpring is a new app, so you'll need to create a new account even if you participated in a previous APHA Billion Steps Challenge. You'll need to agree to the MoveSpring Terms of Service and Privacy Policy and allow MoveSpring to access your activity data.

3. Join an existing team, or create a team. Use the search bar to find your team.

No team? No problem. Join Team APHA!

You can only be part of one team. You can switch teams, but you may not be able to rejoin a team if you leave.
