Million STEP Challenge at Paramount School Park during May

Monday, April 28, 2014

For the month of May 2014, the Ridgecrest Neighborhood Association and the City of Shoreline are partnering to bring a new fitness challenge to the Shoreline community.

The Million Step Challenge at Paramount School Park invites participants of all ages to walk, run (or skate) as many laps as possible around the loop path in the name of health, fitness, and friendly competition. A lap counter with tracking forms will be installed at the park and starting May 1st participants can log their laps on the forms (or online). Current standing and totals will be posted online weekly and prizes will be awarded to top steppers at a closing event on Saturday, May 31 from 5:00 to 7:00pm. 

To kick off the challenge, the community is invited to an opening event on Saturday, May 3 from 9:00 to 11:00am at Paramount School Park, located at 155th and 8th Ave NE. 

A warm up and inaugural lap will be led by Crossfit Hailstorm with energizing snacks from Earth and Fire Kitchen, both local businesses. The Ridgecrest Neighborhood Association is sponsoring the event and asks people to bring a donation of a non-perishable food (preferably healthy) for Hopelink – Shoreline’s local food bank.

The new Million Step Challenge was the idea of Ridgecrest Resident Patty Hale who found inspiration from the popular “Million Stair Challenge” held annually at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park. “It’s time to challenge the Eastside”, says Hale, who is a frequent walker out at Paramount Park.
The stair challenge at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park will take place again in June 2014 following the completion of the Step Challenge at Paramount School Park. Both events are part of the “Shoreline 4 Health” initiative for a healthier community. For questions contact Recreation Assistant Marianne Johnson at 206-801-2600.
