COSHOCTON – Coshocton Springs marked National Falls Prevention Awareness Day by partnering with STEADY U Ohio, the state’s older adult falls prevention initiative, to help take “10 Million Steps to Prevent Falls!” Twenty people signed up on Sept. 22 to participate in a one-mile fitness walk and learn what they or an older loved one can do to reduce the risk of a potentially life-changing fall. The number of participants and miles walked at this event were counted toward the state’s goal of 10 million steps statewide. For tips and resources on how to prevent falls, visit
