Your Toolkit

Children WIN (Wellness Initiative Network), whose mission is to move families to make healthier choices for life, is the driving force behind Walk Cabarrus, a community-wide walking campaign for 2020. The motivation is to transform the collective health of Cabarrus County and to prevent childhood obesity which studies have shown is increasing at a staggering rate. This campaign has 2 main goals:

  1. To engage 1,000 new walkers
  2. Collectively log, through the Walk Cabarrus website, 1 Billion Steps…yes, that is Billion with a B!

Both of these initiatives will take a lot of support from the community so we encourage you to partner with us. We have created a toolkit to help get you started, but however you encourage involvement is welcome!

This toolkit empowers partners to:

  • Effectively communicate the purpose and goals of the campaign
  • Implement your own Walk Cabarrus initiatives at work, at home, etc.
  • Promote the campaign and encourage participation through social media
  • Ensure the health and wellness of Cabarrus County citizens for years to come

Childhood obesity is an increasing trend in many communities, including Cabarrus County. When the work began, approximately 34% of Cabarrus County residents ages 0-18 years were overweight or obese. Recognizing the potential impact of such a trend, Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast commissioned development of a plan of action to study and make suggestions for changing this trend. With the help of professors from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte College of Health and Human Services Department of Public Health, an action plan was developed and presented that outlined general suggestions for addressing the problem.
