We've initiated the 10000steps challenge to enhance active mobility and physical activities among citizens. More details on www.desettisickroku.cz.
The initiative aims to support people in regular walking for at least one month. 10,000 steps, which is 7.5km in average, is more a magic limit; people should know that fewer steps are enough to improve their physical and mental condition, but must be done regularly, in a brisk pace and in a pleasant environment.
Walking is the most natural human movement, it strengthens our bodies and souls.
During the time when our body and soul faces demanding challenges, non-profit organisation Partnership for urban mobility comes with a challenge for all: “come with us on the path to health”, include walking or running among your daily activities.
The goal of the project is to motivate people to do regular physical activity performed by their legs at least for one month. Only regular recording and tracking activities will help us better understand our movement habits.
The ten thousand steps challenge works with a magical level of activity needed, which represents approximately 7,5 kilometres. In reality, much less is needed to see a positive change in the individual body. More important than quantity is regularity, quicker tempo and pleasant environment.
Activities are possible to monitor by whatever device and write down to the profile according to the rules. Every kilometre counts, whereas the age of the participant and its BMI index is taken into account. We want to give a chance to score even older people and people with higher BMI. And for the most active ones, we prepared interesting prizes.
When you participate, you do not only fill your challenge but even motivates others. That is supported via teams, which you participants can establish. Mutual encouragement, cooperation and help are the best motivation for those who need it most.
The challenge runs in the tight cooperation with the cities, which actively supports their inhabitants by informing, local events and making good conditions. That involves providing them with tips on interesting places to visit and then work with them on city improvement processes.
