Platteville‎ > ‎

10,000 Steps

Thank you to all who participated in our 6-week fitness challenge and to the businesses who donated to the program in order to make it possible!

In our 2011 6-week program, we had:
  • 190 Participants;
  • 36 Teams- 30 of these teams reported totals for every week of the program;
  • Team steps increased by an average of 22,258 during the 6 weeks;
  • 81,845,370 steps were reported during this time... which is approximately 41,000 miles or over 1.5 times around the Earth!!
Stay tuned for more information about a 2012 program, which we hope to offer.  We promised you maps of walking and biking resources in the City- those are in the works and when they are printed, we will let you know how to obtain a copy.  If you would like to get involved in reviewing the map, or planning a 10,000 Steps program again for next year, consider attending the City's Community Safe Routes Committee Meetings.  

Again, congratulations!!
