During week eight, 22 employees participated in the Campus to Campus Walking Challenge, and as a group we logged 1,330,008 steps. During week eight, we walked from Rome, Italy to Munich, Germany, and ended up at the Austrian border. During week eight, Ronald Kottnitz, Jayne Kluge, Lynn Rotter and Barb Tomashek-Ditter had the highest number of steps.
During the eight week challenge, 39 employees participated and we logged a total of 16,978,243 steps, which is about 8,489 miles! It would be like walking back and forth across the continental U.S. about 2.25 times, or walking around the perimeter of Wisconsin over 6 times! Great job team!
