Walk Your Way to Better Health with the Step It Up! Challenge

The Texas Medical Association (TMA) and Walk With a Doc (WWAD) Texas are joining forces with Fitbit and Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy, MD, by taking the challenge to Step It Up! this fall. The goal? Get as many steps as possible from October 13-26. The challenge aims to get the country up and moving during a time of year typically spent eating holiday candy and watching spectator sports. And walking has great benefits: it can significantly reduce your risk of chronic diseases and related risk factors, and is one of the most important actions people can take to improve their overall health.

Join TMA and Texas physicians on the WWAD Texas team to compete with other teams across the country to see who can take the most steps this month.

Invite your friends to join Step It Up! and make your steps count. As Surgeon General Murthy jokes in this playful interview, “Every time someone signs up [for Step It Up], a bald eagle is born.”
