The Heart Association and Nature Rocks are calling on all families to move more.

With summer officially here, the American Heart Association is issuing a challenge to all families - 60 Miles in 60 Days Summer Challenge. A challenge that any of us can take on, all we have to do is commit to walking 60 miles in 60 days.

The Heart Association and Nature Rocks, a national program created to inspire and empower parents to take their families out to play, explore and enjoy quality time in nature, are calling on all families to move more.

Physical activity is identified as one of the seven measures necessary for ideal cardiovascular health. Both children and adults need daily physical activity, yet only 15 percent of American adults reach the Heart Association's recommended levels which is 150 minutes per week or more. Plus children are rarely getting their share of daily physical activity.

You can sign up for the 60 Miles in 60 Days Summer Walk Challenge at and visit to download a free guide complete with tips, a walking checklist and mileage tracker to help complete the challenge safely and successfully. The first 60 people to sign up will receive prizes from Nature Rocks and American Heart Association. Everyone who completes the challenge will be featured in Nature Rocks and Start! social media.

This is a great way to encourage your kids and get them excited about being healthy. Drop me a line after you sign up. I'd like to know how you're keeping your family healthy and active.
