Health Action Council’s Summer Step It Up Challenge sponsored by Fitbit was filled to capacity with more than 700 participants from 100 different teams averaging 9,841 steps each day!
Congratulations to the team winner Stroller Runners from Horizon Science Academy who averaged a whopping 30,469 steps each day! They’ll enjoy a healthy lunch and have a $500 donation made in their name to a Ronald McDonald House or school garden project of their choice.
“We’re thrilled with the number of participants in our challenge,’ said Patty Starr, President and CEO of Health Action Council. “This challenge was particularly important during this challenging time and these healthy fitness warriors maintained a sense of connectivity while social distancing.”
The individual award goes to Marina Norby from Burnham Benefits. She averaged an insane 46,259 steps every day totaling 64,763 steps over the two-week Challenge and is now a proud owner of a Fitbit Ionic.
We also had five additional participants who won individual challenges including Debbie Dalton of The Wesley Retirement Communities, Kellie Loudenburg and Amy Martien of Saint Vrain Valley School District, Janel Molnar of Ashland University, and Mary Green of Woodruff-Sawyer & Company.
