Let's Go the Distance, Cook County Walking Campaign

Go the Distance, Cook County is a social media campaign encouraging residents to walk more in the places where they live, work, learn, worship, and play. Walking is fun, easy, affordable, and a great way to connect with family or friends and explore Healthy HotSpots. Together, we will increase how much we walk, starting on National Walking Day - April 6th - through August 31, 2016. Take the pledge, log your minutes, and share pictures as you #GoTheDistanceCC.

Bird the Preserves and Go the Distance

The Forest Preserves of Cook County are a natural Healthy HotSpot, providing opportunities for people to connect with nature and outdoor activities. The Preserves boast nearly 70,000 acres, offering residents numerous ways to enjoy recreational activities. You can #GoTheDistanceCC by participating in #BirdthePreserves. Each month during the 2016 Bird the Preserves initiative, walk in the Preserves to see some of the most interesting and spectacular birds spotted in Cook County. Find an event>>

American Heart Association’s Workplace Health Solutions

The American Heart Association (AHA) has launched an ambitious movement to build a culture of health and well-being. They are putting their plan into action where most Americans spend a lot of time — at work. AHA has combined their scientific expertise with the experience of some of America’s largest companies to test and promote evidence-based approaches to workplace health. The AHA Playbook, a result of this collaboration, helps you better understand what works in workplace health and provides practical, credible advice to tailor the design of your programs.

Healthy HotSpot is an initiative led by the Cook County Department of Public Health that aims to build healthy places in suburban Cook County through community partnerships.
