Last year over 30 million steps were taken by program participants.

Kickoff Event – Sunday, April 22
Kickoff will take place on Sunday, April 22 at 2:00 pm at the Cleveland Heights Community Center. The first 150 registered participants will receive a free WOW t-shirt and an Action Tracker pedometer!
The kickoff event will feature:
- The Honorable Carol Roe, Mayor of Cleveland Heights
- Keynote Speaker - Ty Richardson, Cleveland Heights Personal Trainer
- Distribution of WOW T-Shirts and Action Tracker pedometers to participants
This simple program encourages women to walk daily (individually or in teams) and to log their steps on the City website. Walking is a simple exercise with many health benefits including weight management, improved heart health and stress reduction. WOW participants will be encouraged to walk around Cleveland Heights’ beautiful neighborhoods, parks and pedestrian-friendly pathways, business districts and the community center walking track.
Program Registration is free. Must be a Cleveland Heights resident to participate. Residents can sign up to participate individually or on a team of friends (5 people per team). Each participant or team will register and log their steps on the city website on a weekly basis. The steps will be compiled and shared over the 12-week program with special recognition for the person and team with the most steps at the end.
Free educational workshops on various topics including nutrition, positive self-image as well as free or discounted women’s self-defense sessions and fitness classes will be provided throughout the 12-week program to support healthy living.
The City of Cleveland Heights would like to thank the following WOW program sponsors for their valued contributions and commitment to a healthier community:
