Healthy Monday Race Across the US
The Healthy Monday Race Across the U.S. is a 6-week challenge meant to spark friendly competition while creating and continuing health habits related to movement, healthy eating, stress management and improving social connections.
The goal is to get teams from Syracuse, New York to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California by logging their healthy activities. Besides feeling good, teams can also win prizes along the way. Our latest quest ended in October of 2022 and included an evaluation of email nudges by the Maxwell X-Lab.

The Lerner Center has a portfolio of community health presentations that cover Healthy Monday initiatives and best practices for public health program implementation. Examples of these community health presentations include:
- Monday Mile and Creating Accessible Recreation Spaces
