MILLION MILE MONTH NEWS!

March 9, 2014 – Austin American Statesman – By Pam LeBlanc – Million Mile Month encourages participants to log exercise during April – Be one in a million.

If you’ve been paying any attention, you know America continues to gain weight.

More than a third of Texas children are overweight or obese, and lately we’ve learned that even regular runners who spend long stretches of the day glued to their computers are at risk of what’s being called “sitting disease.”

So get up.

Need some motivation? The folks at Cyberways and Waterways, a nonprofit organization dedicated to children’s health and wellness, have created Million Mile Month, a one-month challenge that encourages Central Texans to move a collective 1 million miles during the month of April.

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. Terrifying.

The problem is, I hear all these negative things and it just gets me down. Everyone talks about the problem, but it doesn’t seem like there is much conversation about solutions. This is why when a new fitness initiative, Million Mile Month, came across my email, I was intrigued.

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).
