MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- iHealth Lab, leading provider of consumer-friendly mobile health devices and apps, and the San Jose office of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) today announced the "iHealth Walk for Wellness Challenge," a fun competition designed to encourage personal fitness and participation in the ADA's 2015 Step Out Walk® to Stop Diabetes® campaign in San Jose. This year's 1-mile, 5K, and 10K walk will be held on Sunday, October 18 at the Guadalupe River Trail in downtown San Jose.
The first 300 registered event participants to raise at least $100 for the campaign will receive a free iHealth Edge Wireless Fitness Tracker (MSRP $69.95).
