Do You Know What Inactivity Does to the Human Body?

Prolonged physical inactivity can lead to an increased risk of chronic illness and loss of independence.

Why is Physical Activity Important?

Regular physical activity strengthens our bodies, decreases stress,​ and improves our overall health.​

​​​ ​​​
What Does Mobility Mean to You?

Mobility means in​dependence. The more you can move, the more you can enjoy regular activities with ease, like grocery shopping and spending time with your family.​​​​

Keep It​ Movin' is h​ere to h​elp!​​

Created in partnership with pastors and community members throughout Chicago, Keep It Movin' works to empower African American communities to safely increase their daily physical activity for overall improved health. ​Our church-wide walking program promotes daily physical movement and c​ommunity accountability. All church members will receive access to a mobile application titled Walker Tracker, which provides uniquely programmed walks throughout Biblical landmarks to promote increased physical activity.

In addition to the church-wide walking program, a group of adults (40 years and older) with limited mobility​ from each church will be invited to participate in one of our two Keep It Movin' specialized support programs: GetFit4Life or Stronger4Longer.
