Healthy Baltimore Initiative & Billion Step Challenge
BCHD is launching the Billion Steps Challenge as part of the Healthy Baltimore initiative starting in July 2017 until October 2018. BCHD, business partners, and community-based organizations will launch a citywide wellness challenge to encourage all residents and employees in Baltimore City to get active. The Healthy Baltimore Initiative focuses on the three pillars of health: mindfulness, movement, and nourishment.
The goal is to get Baltimore more active and to one billion steps by July 2018. BCHD and partners will engage residents toward the goal of a billion steps by hosting challenge events in communities across Baltimore City, creating an online inventory designed to amplify other walks, runs, and wellness events throughout the city, and partnering with workplace wellness programs within companies to encourage taking their activities into the community.
