Join the Move with the Mayor Challenge in cities across the US

While heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., it is often preventable. Being physically active is one of the easiest ways to lower one’s chances of heart disease and its risk factors, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. That is why the National Forum for Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention, in collaboration with CardioSmart, is working with mayors across the country to host the Move with the Mayor Challenge, a World Heart Day-inspired campaign that asks citizens to take steps to improve their health by walking and being physically active during the month of September.

FREE Bluetooth activity trackers will be given out on a first come, first serve basis to select cities during Move with the Mayor events.
Move with the Mayor participants can also track their steps and physical activity using their own personal Fitbit, Jawbone, Apple Watch, or the activity trackers built into their iPhone / Android smart phone (i)
