What’s In a Name?

Erie Walks is now called Step It Up Erie County! The new name is to highlight different forms of exercise and to encourage participants to increase their physical activity.

Moving forward, the program will calculate the average number of steps participants complete. All of your reported steps will be counted and calculated into the average.

Why steps? Steps are easier count or to convert with different movements.
