Baby, It’s Cold Outside!
Perfect time for a Winter Wonderland Trek through Europe.
Join us for the last mini challenge of the 2018 Billion Steps Challenge! Travel along a snowflake shared route as you hike through the land and sea of Viking ships, Norse warriors, and the Kraken! Some of the stops we’ll visit; Russia in time for the Nutcracker, Finland for a quick sauna break, Denmark to learn about the original Little Mermaid and check out the wonders of Iceland.

About Healthy St. Lucie
In June of 2015, community partners began work on a Community Health Improvement Plan for 2016-2019 and formed the Healthy St. Lucie Coalition to promote health where we live, learn, work, and play.
Recognizing that obesity, unhealthy diets and sedentary lifestyles are contributing to poor health these areas were targeted in the plan. As part of the goal to get people to “move more,” the Coalition launched a Billion Steps Challenge on January 1, 2018. By participating in this challenge, you will help St. Lucie County reach the goal of one billion steps by the end of the year!
