As a part of the Live Well Initiative, the Temple Convention & Visitors Bureau is challenging the entire community to get 1,000,000 steps in January. Participants will be encourage to explore Temple’s many beautiful walking trails and parks, then log their steps using the iResolve Challenge on the HealthCode.org website.
Walking 30 minutes every day has a big impact on overall health and wellbeing. According to Prevention Magazine, spending this short time each day will provide the following benefits:
“We hope that the entire community will embrace this challenge,” said Nancy Glover, CVB Director. “This is the perfect New Year challenge, and we think Temple is ready to tackle it!”
Several special activities are being planned in support of the challenge, including a Downtown Temple Walk-About which will lead participants to all three historic depots in Downtown Temple. Participants in the challenge will also be encourage to take part in the Annual Resolution Run 5K on January 13, or to just jump on a treadmill at any of the many fitness facility in Temple.
Once the steps are taken, participants can enter their total number of steps each day, week or at the end of the month by visiting the HealthCode.org website or by linking your Fitbit or other fitness tracker to automatically log your activities. The step log will be accessible from the event tab of the CVB Facebook Page – or by visiting our website at www.discovertemple.com. It is free to participate, however donations to the non-profit that runs the challenge are appreciated.
Live Well in 2018 by starting off the New Year with a Million Steps!
