Week Seven of Eat Well, Live Well was a successful week. There is one more week to go in the Challenge. We have walked 68,993,283 steps, which is approximately 34,496 miles for those who have reported. In other words, we have walked around the earth one and a third times. Amazing. Our average steps per day is up to 9,908, and we have consumed 29,587 cups of fruit and vegetables. The local Farmers Markets will be happy to see us coming!
The highest ranked employees for participation so far in EWLW are Mary Ellen Clark (Bioperambulaters), Anne Lanzafame (For the Record), and Mary Lynch (Bioperambulators). Nice job, ladies! Those ranked highest in participation are the most likely to win the grand prize of a Fitbit at the end of the challenge.
Some of our EWLW participants added to their steps by walking in the Heartwalk on April 12th. The Heartwalk was a big success; we raised almost $3,000 for the American Heart Association. A big shoutout of thanks to all who organized, participated in, or donated to the Heartwalk 2014.
The winner of the $10 Sodexo Gift Card for participation this week is Laurie Cherry from the Librarians Team. Congratulations, Laurie!
