Steps Challenge 2021 – Our Health and Well Being


Some weather we are having and its going to continue for the next few days so lets take advantage. With competition entry in the  bag, we can now contribute to the leaderboard but more importantly our own health. A walk does everyone the world of good and has many positive benefits from our heart to our mind.

We now have 84 steppers onboard (Up 9 since our last report) but I know there are more of thinking its too late to start? Well its never to late to get out in the fresh air and get some steps under your feet. It will do you the world of good. The good news is we have surpassed the 4000KM required to be eligible for the Club Draw so with the at aside, its back to the provincial and local leaderboard updates. 

Province wise, we have dropped a few places but we have until March 3rd to move us on up the leadboard.
