Eleven storEnergy members began their journeys in the 10,000 Steps Challenge Tournament on 1 March 2020. The time-out tournament sees storEnergy competing against the ARC Training Centre in Lightweight Automotive Structures (ATLAS) and the ARC Medicinal Agriculture Hub for the most steps over 40 days (1 Mar – 9 April).
The 10,000 Steps Challenge aims to increase personal day-to-day activity by encouraging the use of step-counting pedometers or activity trackers to accumulate “incidental” physical activity as part of everyday living. Significant health and well-being benefits can be made simply by moving more every day.
“It’s a fun group activity for us to engage in some team culture, while having a bit of exercise” says current steps leader and PhD student Greg Rollo-Walker.
A $100 Rebel Sports voucher prize will be awarded to the person who accumulates the most steps by the end of the Challenge. It’s not too late to be involved! Contact Team Captain Timothy Khooto register as part of the team.
