Active Alliance Ambassador Pedometer Competition Round Two
Last week on Friday Fitness day we announced the amazing results in the first round of this competition, which had 52 Cabrillo High School students posting a grand total of 5,187,998 steps.
The next round of the challenge which took place April 10-April 24th included 7 schools, with an average of four to seventeen students participating, per school.
The wrap-up statistics were as follows:
67 students total have participated with a total of 5,834,151 steps with an overall average of 110,132 steps.
The highest “average number of steps by students” was at Health Professional High School (134,143 steps) where coordinator Alice Curchin recorded “highest achiever,” student Inderpal Benipal registering 162,732 steps.
Sarah Ashraf from Hiram Johnson High School scored the highest total of steps, 251,133.
One of the students from San Lorenzo High School observed that, “I didn’t realize I walked so much during school and how lazy I am on the weekends. Makes me want to make sure I walk more on the weekends.”
Tip of the day: Wearing a pedometer can be one of the best ways to record just how active you really are and it’s also one of the best ways to inspire change.
