On September 7th Local Organizations Partner to Celebrate 'Healthy Steps'
Date:9/7/2007

A health program where small changes make a huge impact

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Join the Urban League of Philadelphia as we celebrate the end of Healthy Steps, a six-week health challenge, with partners America On the Move, the Philadelphia Housing Authority, and Philadelphia Safe and Sound on Friday, September 7th from 6pm to 8pm at PHA's Wilson Park Community Center, 2500 Jackson Street in South Philadelphia.

The Urban League of Philadelphia and its partners worked together to help individuals and communities make informed food and physical activity choices through effective communication guided by sound, evidence-based information. Healthy Steps encouraged participants to avoid weight gain by adding just 2,000 extra steps to one's daily routine and to choose wise ways to eat 100 fewer calories each day. "If you make small realistic changes that fit into your busy lifestyle," says Patricia A. Coulter, Urban League President & CEO, "you'll have greater success at maintaining good health for the long term."

With free online tools and resources as well as fun group activities, Healthy Steps participants ranged in age from teenagers to senior citizens. "It's important to stay physically active throughout your life," says PHA Executive Director Carl Greene, "The Wilson Park Walkers is a group of senior citizens who improved their health simply by walking more and eating less." Many senior citizens will be on hand to celebrate their success with the program.
