The members of the Northern CT Black Nurses Association, Inc. are walking to Indianapolis...virtually! As part of our obesity prevention initiative, we have put on pedometers and will collectively walk the 834 miles from Connecticut to Indiana. High quality pedometers were purchased and distributed to members who are tracking the number of miles walked daily. In addition to the pedometers, we are wearing our newly purchased “Walking Into Wellness” buttons, which we hope will motivate us to move and also serve as conversation starters with other people. During our last meeting, buttons were distributed and members were photographed showing off our new motivational buttons. If you’d like to purchase a pedometer and walk with us, please contact Rose Curtin-Clarke at
or email the Chapter at
As of today, May 27th we have walked 1046 miles! We have passed Indianapolis and are now in Georgia. Now we have to figure out how to get back home.
