KEYE-TV: Austin, Travis County Million Mile Month Kickoff

Austin and Travis County elected officials and business leaders on April 1 gathered in Austin City Hall to kick off the Million Mile Month challenge throughout the month of April.

HealthCode’s Million Mile Month is a virtual local-to-global activity challenge in which participants track physical activity – from walking to dancing to yoga to gardening – with a goal of reaching 1 million miles collectively as a global community in the month of April.

The HealthCode community is celebrating 10 years of the event designed to help raise awareness on the role of physical activity in good physical and mental health.

Austin City Councilman Zohaib “Zo” Qadri attended the event and read a proclamation signed by Austin Mayor Kirk Watson declaring April 2024 as Million Mile Month.
