Are you ready for a million miles?
Now is your chance. Registration is now open for HealthCode’s 2018 Million Mile Month.
Million Mile Month is an April wellness challenge in which participants track their physical activity – from walking to running to swimming to yoga – with a goal of accomplishing a collective 1 million miles as a global community. Companies and participants can register here.
“When we started Million Mile Month five years ago, the goal was to engage individuals to take control of their health with a fun challenge to achieve 1 million miles of physical activity as one global community. We wanted everybody to get moving,’’ said Steve Amos, executive director of HealthCode. “The program has grown since then as companies of all sizes and individuals from around the world stepped up to take the challenge.”
HealthCode’s mission is to empower people to live healthier, happier lives by engaging people year-round through community-focused, goal-based challenges and programs.
“Physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health,’’ Amos said. ”Not only can physical activity help control weight, it can reduce the risk of chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and some cancers. And it makes you feel good.’’
The program is simple. Participants complete activity and log the miles or minutes on the HealthCode activity tracker. Throughout the month the program leaderboard is updated with miles contributed by people all around the world.
