Next month I’m participating in a physical activity challenge called the Million Mile Month, and you should too! I’ve been working toward being more active and improving my health these past couple months. Next month, I’m really looking forward to participating in the Million Mile Month in hopes it’ll keep me motivated this spring! Are you looking for an excuse to start being more active? Check it out!
The Million mile month
If you’ve never heard of the Million Mile Month (MMM), let me catch you up. Every April HealthCode (a 501c3 nonprofit) holds a challenge to complete one million miles of physical activity, together as one global community. The idea is to help you and your families become healthier this spring! And any activity counts! From walking, running, biking, hiking, swimming, Zumba, weight lifting, yoga and many, many more! Sync your Fitbit, Map My Fitness account, or other fitness devices, or track your activities manually. Set your own goal and focus on achieving it by the end of April! Work with your community or organization to make your way to the top of the leaderboard.
My favorite part? It’s FREE to participate! There are several options for donating as well. All proceeds from this event support HealthCode, a nonprofit with the mission to empower people to live healthier lives, free from preventable diseases!
