First Community Wellness Steps Challenge


First Community Summer Steps Challenge

Our Summer Steps Challenge will begin on Monday July 7th, 2014.  With nice weather finally here, what better way to step into Summer than increasing our activity levels by walking or running to improve our overall health and well-being.  By walking and running, we decrease our risk of heart attacks, decrease the risk of developing diabetes, and promote our overall sense of wellness.  This is a team steps challenge.  Once sign up is complete, a representative at Clarke and Company will randomly assign teams of three employees each.  Below you will find the steps log to track your team’s daily number of steps. We will update the website each week with the top teams so check this site weekly to see how your team is progressing. You must participate every week to earn your points.  Each participant will be given a pedometer to measure your steps.  Enjoy the challenge!!
