Looking for a way to Step it Up! to the Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities?
If you’ve been thinking of creating a walking group for your workplace, community group, or faith-based organization, the 21-Day Walk ‘n Roll Challenge Resource Document may provide the guidance you’ve been looking for.
The 21-Day Challenge was the San Francisco Federal Building’s answer to the Surgeon General’s Call to Action. Whether employees walked or rolled, the Challenge encouraged everyone to increase their level of physical activity during the 21-day period. Of the 145 employees who enrolled, a third successfully completed the Challenge.
The 21-Day Challenge Resource Document provides a summary of this event, including steps and ideas for how you can replicate a similar walking challenge. The document also includes a list of helpful online resources for starting walking groups, as well as a downloadable PowerPoint presentation to help you educate others about the Call to Action.
