You can use the website to track your progress, find walking events and even create your own walking routes too.
Walk4Life Miles are 1 mile long walking routes that have been waymarked so you know exactly what route to walk and you can even use them in test your fitness. In Dartford a Walk4Life Mile has been waymarked around Brooklands Lakes, why not visit the lakes and find out how fit you are.
Be Sugar Smart!
A campaign has been launched, encouraging parents to get "Sugar Smart" and take control of their children's sugar intake.
The Change4Life campaign follows revelations that four-to-10 year olds consume an estimated 5,500 sugar cubes a year (22kg), weighing the same as an average five-year-old.
Sugar Smart packs will be given away to primary school children and their families via schools, local authorities and retailers.
