Why join us?
The combination of poor nutrition, obesity and lack of physical exercise is poised to overtake tobacco use as the leading cause of cancer in the United States. A healthy lifestyle that abstains from tobacco and combines good nutrition with physical activity can prevent nearly two-thirds of all cancers. The Healthiest Mile highlights the importance of a lifestyle that prevents cancer, improves health, happiness and productivity. This is an opportunity for the people of Des Moines to show their support for a healthier Iowa.
