Step challenge success

Step challenge success

In March our Wellbeing Champion, Marie, set out a ward step challenge encouraging the team to aim for 70K steps per week as a way to motivate staff and show the benefits of being active and how it can help their mental and physical health.

As the competition has now drawn to a close the steps have been counted and we’re delighted to say that over the course of the five weeks the team achieved 2,874,916 steps!

Our weekly winners were;

  • Week 1 – Claire, Domestic – 134k steps
  • Week 2 – James, Assistant Finance Manager – 140k steps
  • Week 3 – Christine, Domestic – 141k steps
  • Week 4 – Gill, Domestic – 111k steps
  • Week 5 – Marcia, Domestic – 109k steps

The overall winner over the course of the five weeks was Claire with a huge 655k steps – well done!

Marie says “Homing in on their competitiveness was what worked and I’m so pleased with how they took on the challenge. I’m already being asked when we’re doing another!”

Congratulations to all involved!
