Week 3 - Over half way there

Many of you entered the Fruit and Vegetable quiz in Week 3 testing your knowledge. You walked beaches, parks, castles, fields, mountains - during lunch, in the morning and in the evening. Some of you even counted your steps while abroad. Others gained extra steps at Bloom or ran marathons. Rain or sun - it didn't matter steps were counted! Millions of kilometers worth of steps were clocked up. Well done to all!

Week 4 - Limerick Competition, rain, lots of photo collages and many happy faces 

The fourth week of the Steps to Health Challenge saw many teams getting creative, putting their thinking caps on and coming up with some fantastic Limericks. Well done to all teams that submitted an entry. Unfortunately the week also saw rain and cooler weather but this did not stop our teams getting in their steps and keeping up their enthusiasm and positive attitudes. Well done!
