Adults and Children Alike Walk to Fight Childhood Obesity

Healthy LifeStars, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping today’s youth fight childhood obesity by promoting active, healthy lifestyles at a young age, announces their annual 2017 Step Up 4 Kids Walkathon will be held on April 17 through 23. This fun event is designed to encourage children and adults to be healthy and active by walking the most steps for one consecutive week. Funds raised will be used to help combat childhood obesity by supporting underserved children and organizations wishing to join the Healthy LifeStars program.

Whether as a team or individual, participation is easy. Once registered for the Walkathon at www.healthylifestars.org, participants use a pedometer or other step-tracking device such as a Fitbit or phone app to track their daily steps and each day they log in to the Healthy LifeStars website to enter that day’s total steps. It’s all virtual – so people can walk and record steps from anywhere in the country all weeklong. Participants raise money by asking friends, family, and colleagues to sponsor their efforts or make a donation. Prizes will be awarded to the top 25 kids, top 3 adults and the top team to log the most steps during the week of the Walkathon.

A celebration fundraising dinner will culminate on November 8th in Phoenix, Arizona. All winners are eligible for a free ticket to the celebration dinner; one representative from the winning team will also receive a free ticket.

Registration is only $25 per adult and free for participants 17 and younger, with the first 200 to register, 100 adults and 100 kids receiving a free T-shirt. The first 100 children (17 and under) to register will also receive a free pedometer and other goodies.
