Ville-to-Ville Step Challenge
September 23 - November 3
Which 'Ville can walk the most steps -
Phoenixville or Coatesville?
"Recording my steps online was a great motivator to be more active - especially days when I had a busy schedule and had to make time to fit in some serious walking"
Phoenixville and Coatesville are competing in a Ville-to-Ville Step Challenge to see which ‘Ville can walk the most steps in six weeks.
Phoenixville lost the 2017 challenge to Coatesville by only 75 steps per day. This year we need to step it up and make a comeback!
