The Challenge:
TAKE 42 MILLION COLLECTIVE STEPS
In one 24-Hour Period on Monday, November 2, 2015

In the United States more than 80% of adults do not get enough physical activity. Lack of exercise can lead to obesity (one of the leading causes of preventable death) and obesity-related conditions including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer.

24 Hours | 42 Million Steps

On Monday, November 2, 2015 the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Foundation is hosting a national pedometer challenge to bring attention to the obesity epidemic in America, and encourage individuals to increase their daily physical activity.

Are You Up to The Challenge?

We are asking YOU to help us meet our goal of 42 million steps (20,800 miles – the boundary of the United States) by pledging to track your step count on November 2nd, and submit your total by the end of the day. Registration is free and everyone is welcome to participate.
