The Active Alliance Ambassador Pedometer Competition Final Results
Students participating in this year’s Active Alliance Ambassador Pedometer Competition really stepped it up! For 2 weeks, participating students wore their Omron Pedometers, which tracked how many steps they walked, ran, or danced during each day. HealthCorps schools from the Southwest Region competed from March 16-27, while HealthCorps schools in Northwest Region competed from April 13-24.
Cabrillo High School in Long Beach, CA, won the Southwest Region’s Pedometer Competition. The school had 52 student participants who stepped an impressive, grand total of 1,846,696 steps (or 2,075 miles). That’s 142,000 total steps/person or 10,143 daily steps/person! Congratulations to Coordinator Jacquelene Falch and her students at Cabrillo for the big win!
