Week One – Shared stories

Pedometers were delivered to over 500 schools this week and kids were out getting active trying to increase their step count and overall activity. Check out some of the stories we received from parents and teachers.

This is the first time Levi has ever asked to walk to school and it was a beautiful day for it.  The dog enjoyed it too :)

Gotta love it. Miss 12 volunteered to do this training walk up Colonial Knob, Porirua this afternoon so we could both get lots of steps!
