May 6, 2019 - Great going to the over 600 walkers who have signed up to participate in the Four-Town Walking Competition! Tell your friends, share a walk and move towards improved fitness!

There have been a few questions about syncing devices with the step tracking program. This article from the supportive folks at WalkerTracker may be of assistance. Here’s a helpful article explaining how syncing works.

***********************************************************************************************

CChd’s 2019 four-town walking competition begins April 28th.

Central Connecticut Health District (CCHD) will host the fourth annual ‘Step into Summer: 2019 Walking Competition’ from April 28th through June 8th in partnership with Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield and our four towns. During the 6-week event, district residents and employees within the towns of Berlin, Newington, Rocky Hill and Wethersfield engage in a friendly neighborhood competition in an effort to jump-start an active and healthy summer.

Berlin has won the High Stepper Trophy each year! Will they win again?

Starting April 15, you can register here. Or visit https://cchd4town.walkertracker.com

New this year: Thanks to Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, we will be able to use their exciting new step-tracking program: WalkerTracker. There is also a mobile app (search for WalkerTracker) that syncs with many phones, and wearable devices. But make sure to use this web address on the mobile app to register: https://cchd4town.walkertracker.com For instructions on using WalkerTracker click here. Don’t forget to register for your Town Team!

Guidelines: Any physical activity is encouraged. However, activities such as swimming and bike riding or those that are not trackable on a pedometer (or a tracking device) are limited to 30 minutes or 3,000 steps per day to be fair to the foot-based focus of the Walking Competiton.

Pedometers are also available for free on a first come first served basis. If you would like a pedometer, please contact the representative in your town:

Berlin: Lecia  Paonessa - lpaonessa@town.berlin.ct.us

Newington: Nick Pizzoferrato - NPizzoferrato@NewingtonCT.Gov

Rocky Hill: Rita Chhabra - rchhabra@rockyhillct.gov

We invite you to join the 2019’s Walking Competition in an effort to keep moving in the right direction one step at a time!
