Georgians get healthy one step at a time

June 6th, 2015

Georgians have been busy this spring. Since February, more than 3,500 people have signed up for University of Georgia Extension’s revamped Walk Georgia program and have logged more than 72,398 hours of physical activity on the site. UGA Extension rolled out its newest version of Walk Georgia—an online, community-based physical activity program—in February, continuing its long track record of helping Georgians, getting about 50,000 people moving since its inception in 2008. Previously, UGA Extension only offered Walk Georgia during 12-week sessions in the spring and fall, but a $1 million, three-year grant from the Coca-Cola Foundation has allowed for an expansion, making the program available any time.
