Walk To The Moon with Our Community
Murrieta, CA – January 15, 2014. Hospitals, schools, community groups and a variety of civic agencies in Southwest Riverside County have joined together to create a healthy communities walking campaign. Participants will log their steps or miles into a website that will tally the mileage walked from now through April 27. The event culminates on Sunday April 27 at Diamond Stadium with the Lake Elsinore Storm and a community celebration.
“Walk To The Moon With Our Community” was conceived as a way to begin a community-wide effort toward a healthier lifestyle and to engage in more exercise. “We are excited to work with other hospitals, schools, public agencies and businesses to encourage each other as a community, to walk and log those steps into the website,” says Cynthia Clark, Director of Employee & Community Wellness for Loma Linda University Medical Center Murrieta. “Simple daily exercise can have a big health payoff! We want to encourage people to add more steps to their days. As a community we can walk the 238,900 miles it takes to get to the moon, together!”
The final celebration on April 27 will mark the beginning of a new collaboration toward a healthier community. The “Southwest Riverside County Healthy Community Collaboration” will continue to create and promote health initiatives here in our communities. Members of the collaboration will include representatives from hospitals, school districts, businesses, civic agencies and community groups.
Moderate and regular exercise has been shown to have dramatic positive impact on health factors including improved cardiovascular health, reduction in the development of type 2 diabetes, improved mental and emotional health, improved brain function and stronger bones.
To log your mileage go to http://citybyapp.com/walktothemoon/. You will enter an email address to create your account but your email will not be used or sold for any third party activity.
