go Vibrant Launches the 4th Annual “Million Step Challenge” highlighting 19 Cincinnati neighborhoods
go Vibrant is teaming up with 19 neighborhoods around Greater Cincinnati this summer to launch the 4th Annual “Million Step Challenge” over a five-month period.
The Million Step Challenge was officially launched at Taste of Cincinnati with the Veggie Races at Findlay Market and runs through October 12. Participants in each neighborhood will track their steps over the five-month period, log them on www.govibrant.org or download the app to sync to a device. Prizes will be awarded to the neighborhood with the most steps at the end of the challenge.
The challenge will highlight the neighborhoods of Avondale, Covington, Clifton, Delhi, Downtown, East Walnut Hills, Evanston, Golf Manor, Madisonville, Mt. Washington, Mt. Adams, Northside, Newport, Pleasant Ridge and Walnut Hills. New neighborhoods added this year include Bond Hill/Roselawn, College Hill, Norwood and Oakley.
“We hope our ‘Million Step Challenge’ will foster healthy habits, encourage neighborhood camaraderie as well as highlight our go Vibrant walking routes in these neighborhoods, which only encourages more activity” said Laura Chrysler, Executive Director go Vibrant. “Our goal is to live a more vibrant lifestyle through walking while becoming more familiar with their neighbors and their streets.”
Throughout the challenge, go Vibrant will be in each of the neighborhoods at selected events encouraging them all to get more of their neighbors walking.
