Research by the America On the Move Foundation shows that making two small daily changes -- taking 2,000 more steps (the equivalent of about a mile) and eating 100 fewer calories -- can prevent the average annual weight gain of one to two pounds. Individuals and families are encouraged to take these steps toward a healthier lifestyle and track those steps during America On the Move Week with the YMCA. This year, the national goal is to reach 10 billion steps across the country during this designated week. Go to www.ymca.net to find a local YMCA that is participating in America On the Move Week with the YMCA.

"Focusing on extreme diets and exercise plans can overwhelm and cause people to tune out instead of take action," said James O. Hill, Ph.D., America on the Move Foundation co-founder. "Partnering with the YMCA provides a huge opportunity for us to personally engage with millions of people and show them how small steps can reap big rewards."

America On the Move Week with the YMCA is a partnership between the YMCA and the America On the Move Foundation. PepsiCo is supporting this effort as a national supporter of YMCA Activate America(R) and the National Presenting Partner of America On the Move Week with the YMCA.
