Walk With Keith

RTC's President Keith Laughlin made a New Year's resolution to walk 2,000 miles in 2016—an average of 5.5 miles per day—and surpassed his goal! Now, we're challenging everyone to join #TeamRTC in taking 1 billion steps by April 9, 2017, the day after Opening Day for Trails!

Launched by the American Public Health Association to help everyone start the New Year off on the right foot, the 1 Billion Steps Challenge is a fun way for us all to lead healthier, more active lives. And following Keith's example, the whole team is excited to lace up their sneakers and hit the trail, staircase or treadmill to reach the steps goal!

Will you help us by becoming part of the team?
