“The Longest Journey begins with a single step.”  - Lao Tsu

Hopefully everyone started their day by putting on their pedometers  and eating a healthy breakfast! We are 32 teams strong in our effort to improve our health. That means 160 participants are counting their steps as you read this. That’s FANTASTIC! Spring is here by the calendar but just in case you need to stay indoors, remember to use the “Steps conversion chart” to calculate your non-walking activities. Keep watching and we will be posting information about upcoming activities.
