The Million Stair Challenge started in 2012 as a way to bring more attention to the health benefits of stair climbing and bring more people out to Saltwater Park in Shoreline. Since then, the stairs have become an increasingly popular place for people to gather with the common goal of staying in shape.

In the Challenge, individuals count the number of stairs they climb during the month of June. The goal was to cumulatively reach One Million Steps. The goal was 1,000,000 - the actual count was 1.848,850!

Following is a list of the individuals who participated and their number of steps. The top Stepper was Wallace Warren, with 131,016.
