Fontana Walks! is a challenge to the community, to encourage and motivate residents to walk 2 billion steps (or 1 million miles) over the course of one year. This citywide effort is designed for residents of all ages and will focus on adding physical activity to daily routines.
Regular physical activity has shown to help control weight and lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and depression.
Walking is easy, free and pays big dividends for an individual’s physical and mental well-being.
Whether residents walk on their own, in a group, or join one of the community walks led by City Council and Healthy Fontana, it is important to remember that “every step counts.”
We have already taken 2.6 billionsteps since the Fontana Walks! program started. That is the equivalent to ~1,231,061 miles!
