Walkable Grand Haven is community wide initiative designed to promote physical activity and health to all citizens.
Grand Haven is a community abundant with bike paths, trails, sidewalks and opportunities for various types of outdoor recreation. In addition there are numerous fitness centers, including private clubs, schools, the Northwest Ottawa Recreation Authority (NORA) and the local YMCA which have many opportunities and programs for physical activity and exercise. By encouraging our citizens to lead a more active lifestyle, we are working to improve their health and overall quality of life.
The program will be utilizing a website which will allow participants to create an individual profile page, to track the number of steps they accumulate daily through walking or by converting other modes of physical activity into steps. In addition individuals will be allowed to set personal goals, participate in contests, interact with other users on the Walkable Grand Haven site and even link their daily results to Facebook! To provide additional motivation, there will be drawings and prizes offered as incentives throughout the program.
