Almost 8 million steps! Or to be completely accurate — since we are at a public health meeting — 7,903,702 steps! That's the collective steps of the 268 people who participated in APHA's 2015 Walking Challenge, which began on Sunday and ended today with the announcement of our winners.
Congratulations to first place winner Parth Patel from Morgantown, West Virginia, who took 104,084 steps; second place winner Paige Piontkowsky from Claremont, California, who clocked 101,126 steps; and third place winner Alison Arberg from Richmond, Virginia, who took 83,435 steps.
