id you know that the City of
Allentown Bureau of Health and
Department of Parks and Recreation launched a walking program
called Million Clicks for Million Hearts?
This is a citywide program that began in
April of 2016 and so far more than 1200
people have joined the fun!
The Million Clicks for Million Hearts
initiative was launched as part of Allentown's
participation in the CDC's Million Hearts
initiative to prevent 1 million heart attacks
and strokes by 2017. We aim to log 1 million
clicks citywide by 2018. To date, 27,369
clicks have been logged.
This walking program uses unique "click
to walk" technology whereby program
participants receive a free keytab upon
registering for the program. The keytabs
are synched to multiple JobClocks which
have been placed at walking paths around
the city at the following locations:
LifeTrail in Cedar Creek Parkway:
Trail across from pavilions - enter on
Honochick Drive
Trexler Park:
Main trail entrance near pond -
enter on Springhouse Road

Andre Reed Park:
Near Andre Reed Park sign -

Each time you click-in at any clock with
your keytab, your name is entered to win a
prize, which will be awarded monthly. The
more you click-in, the more chances you
have to win. With JobClocks located all
over the city, participating in Million Clicks

for Million Hearts is easy. So grab a friend,
register today and help the city reach the
goal of one million clicks!
Keep in mind walking provides a myriad
of health benefits for senior adults including
a stronger heart, a positive mental outlook
and an increased chance of remaining
indefinitely independent.
