10,000 Steps Challenge Kickoff Event
April 25, 11:00 a.m.


A community-driven event to help 13 News viewers lead a more active lifestyle. In partnership with SwedishAmerican Hospital, the 13 News Today team of Aaron Wright, Hannah Welker and Greg Bobos will join viewers in the challenge of taking at least 10,000 steps a day. To help the community get involved, 1,000 pedometers have been purchased, and will be given away at a kickoff event on Thursday, April 25, at CherryVale Mall. This will be a four-week challenge, starting on Thursday, April 25 and ending on Wednesday, May 22. The hope is to get as many people as possible involved in the challenge and to help raise awareness about the importance of living a more active lifestyle. 10,000 steps is equivalent to about five miles, which is a great start to an active day. We are looking forward to a great month with more and more steps taken every day!
