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.” • Participants can join at any time!
Let's give a round of applause to our top step getters of the week February 10 - February 16

Since the program begin in August 2017, Jeanette C. has walked 1,492,277 steps. That's almost the distance from Fontana to Albuquerque, New Mexico!
Way to go, everyone!
Don't forget to log your steps each Thursday and you might be the highest stepper next week!
