This year anyone can sign up and take advantage of this fun campaign with a fall theme. "We've had such tremendous interest from individuals and families that we decided to put a public site online," explains Dean Witherspoon, founder and CEO of Health Enhancement Systems. "October is an ideal time to step outside, enjoy the cool weather and spectacular fall colors, and build a healthy walking habit."

We want people to experience all the health and psychological benefits that come with a regular, ongoing fitness ( routine."
