The American Heart Association is excited to announce the “Billion Calorie Count-UP” – a multi-year, nationwide challenge to get Americans to collectively burn 1 billion calories by 2020. Calories collected at Heart Walks across the country in 2012 will be tallied up and reported on the “Big Ticker” counter for the “Billion Calorie Count-UP” on Nov. 7, 2012, which is National Eating Healthy Day.

To be part of the “Billion Calorie Count-Up,” visit www.heartwalk.org to sign up for an American Heart Association Heart Walk in your area, and to access healthy living resources including information about getting active and eating healthy.

And, taking your first steps can be easy with more than 19,000 American Heart Association Walking Paths and Walking Clubs that you join or create across the country.
