MILLION MILE MONTH NEWS!

Feb 19, 2014 – Free Fun In Austin – Million Mile Month:April 2014 – We hear day in and day out that sitting is killing us, our diets aren’t healthy enough, no one is getting enough exercise (not even teenage athletes), the number youths that are obese and overweight is growing each day, and that the youngest generation is the first generation ever that has a shorter life expectancy than their parents.

Million Mile Month is a fun event challenging all of Texas to accomplish one million miles of walking, running, swimming and riding (biking, skateboarding, skating) together as one large community in one month (April 2014).
