Along with the additional outreach of Carly Smitherman, Program Administrator for HWC, and Jen Childress and Debbie Martinez of the NFHDSP, several elected leaders jumped on board with the national challenge. Among them are Mayor Richard Irvin of Aurora, Mayor Rodney Craig of Hanover Park, Mayor Franco Coladipetro of Bloomingdale, Mayor Kevin Wallace of Bartlett, Glendale Heights Village President Linda Jackson, and Glen Ellyn Village President Diane McGinley.
Smitherman has been working with California app designer Heka Health and the Forum to share the custom step tracker with the additional participating communities in time for the September 1st start date. Joining the app is easy by downloading it, completing the in-app registration and pairing it with your favorite activity device whether that be a FitBit, Garmin, Apple watch or those built into a Smart device.
