To end our 10000 steps challenge this year some our staff are participating in the 10000 Steps (Virtual walk) East to West Coast Tournament.
We are stepping it up this time and have three teams entered in this tournament. Brook Medical 1, 2 and 3. This time we are competing against each other. It is pushing us to walk more, and this is beneficial for us all.
We have to walk 5,000,000 steps this time around.
The 2013 Australian Health Survey reports 60% of Australian adults did less than the recommended 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity per day. Adults who participated in a pedometer study recorded an average of 7,400 steps per day. Less than one in five adults (19%) recorded the recommended 10,000 steps per day on average which is needed to achieve health benefits.
If you see us out walking on our breaks, make sure you say hello!
