BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — The Bridgeport health department is challenging city residents to put a little extra spring in their steps by joining the Take The Stairs Initiative.
The steps challenge begins with a kick-off event at 10 a.m., Nov. 13, at the Margaret Morton Government Building, 999 Broad Street.
The event runs from Nov. 13 through Jan. 13 and participants will be entered into a lottery for incremental incentives throughout the challenge. A grand prize will be given at the end of the event.
Those who sign up will get a pedometer, water bottle or T-shirt and will record their steps each week.
Residents may sign up at the event, request a registration form by calling the Bridgeport Department of Health at 203-576-7680 or go to the website .
