City of Glendale Challenges Residents to Take the Billion Step Challenge


The City of Glendale is challenging you to walk a billion steps. A billion steps sounds like a lot, and it is. Taking one billions steps would be enough to go once around the Earth and to the Moon and back, but thankfully you aren’t alone. The entire community is taking on the challenge to collective walk 1,000,000,000 steps to encourage individuals, families, community organizations and local businesses to get out and get active. The Billion Step Challenge is an important part of the Be Street Smart Glendale campaign which is empowering local residents to take personal responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others when walking, driving or biking in Glendale.

With the sheer amount of destinations to visit in the Jewel City, and the ease of signing up for the Billion Step Challenge, every member of the community can get up and join the movement. All you have to do is visit www.bestreetsmart.walkertracker.com and click the “Register Now” button to sign up in 30 easy seconds. Then you can login on the website or via your mobile app for iOS and Android and chart your progress as you go. The first 300 people to register will do so for free, after that there will be a small fee.

The Billion Step Challenge is just one aspect of the Be Street Smart Glendale campaign. Be Street Smart Glendale is a citywide effort to make the City’s streets safe for all road users – whether that be pedestrians, motorists, or bicyclists. The campaign educates and empowers road users to take responsibility for their safety and the safety of others.
