Community Health

Move with the Mayor / Step It Up! Challenge

Just as a trained workforce is important to a city’s economy, so is a healthy one. That is why we organize our mayors to compete in the Move with the Mayor/Step It Up! Challenge created by the National Forum for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention. By promoting heart health and walkable cities, our mayors are engaging with their communities and emphasizing the importance of living an active life. Mayors encourage their communities to be physically active to lower their chances of heart disease and its risk factors like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
