WALKING ACROSS THE COUNTRY — TWICE!

Categories: News

Beginning in February, staff at the YWCA have focused on becoming – and staying – healthy. Since then, under the theory that walking is a simple form of exercise that can improve one’s general health, YWCA staff have been recording the number of steps that they take each day, as well as participating in after-work yoga and aerobics classes.

After six months of the program, individual participants averaged 616,000 steps – or a total of 22.8 million for the group. To put that number in context, YWCA staff members walked more than 11,000 miles – the equivalent of trekking from New York City to Los Angeles (and back again) twice!
