Movement Challenge Champions announced

Submitted by Human Capital Services - Benefits

The second Movement Challenge for Kansas State University ended Oct. 1. On Aug. 21, your K-State family embarked on a six-week challenge to find daily ways to be active, increase activity levels and to compete departmentally to be the Movement Challenge champions. This year had a 38 percent participation increase from the 2015 challenge, with 897 K-State employees participating. 

As a group, Movement Challenge participants walked, moved, exercised and were active an equivalent of 251,178,726 steps. That is 125,589 miles and a total of five times around the earth. Last year we moved around the earth three times. That increase and progress is worth celebrating!

The 2016 competition was threefold. K-State departments participated for the title of most active department and highest participation. Individuals also competed to be the most active K-Stater. 

And now, for the final results…
