Starting today, 70,000 Steps in 7 Days encourages local communities to get up and move by striving for 70,000 Steps in 7 Days from each participant. Centers can use this event as a fundraiser and donate all monies to local programs and scholarship funds in the fight against obesity or other health related issues. The challenge involves wearing a pedometer and tracking how many steps a day a person is achieving. The community who achieves the most steps in the seven days receives national recognition through press releases, the Medical Fitness Association website, and the 2013 Annual International Conference in San Diego!
