To help encourage citizens to get out and start moving, Thomasville's YMCA hosted "America on the Move."

Participants were given pedometers to track the number of steps they take all week long.

At the end of the week Thomas County is hoping to have one million steps counted, and the goal for the Nation is one billion!

There was also a heath fair and health screenings at Saturday's event to help encourage healthy living.
