FITWEEK’s leaders have been challenged to walk 10,000 steps a day Monday through Friday of FITWEEK. 10,000 steps is a rough equivalent to the U.S. Surgeon General’s recommendation to accumulate 30 minutes of activity most days of the week. It should be enough to reduce your risk for disease and help you lead a longer, healthier life! If they reach their goal, FITWEEK will make a donation to Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven. Everyone is encouraged to join the challenge by signing up on the FITWEEK website!
The public is invited to join FITWEEK’s community leaders in the FITWEEK 10K Step Challenge presented by Fitbit. Community leaders include Sonia Baghdady, News Anchor at WTNH, Dr. Anees Chagpar, Director, The Breast Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven, Claire Criscuolo, Chef/Restaurateur/Cookbook Author at Claire's Corner Copia and Basta Trattoria, Tony Rescigno, President of the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce, James P. Torgerson, President & CEO of UIL Holdings Corporation.
Join our community leaders as they take their official first steps of the Challenge.
