The Monday Campaigns is a non-profit public health initiative associated with Johns Hopkins, Columbia, and Syracuse universities that dedicates the first day of every week to health. Every Monday, individuals and organizations join together to commit to the healthy behaviors that can help end chronic preventable diseases.
In a recent collaboration with the New York City Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD) and the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, the campaign hosted a Monday Mile kick-off event to highlight the benefits of physical activity for people of all ages and abilities.
