Kickoff for 2017 Million Step Challenge Saturday at Paramount School Park

Thursday, April 27, 2017

The community is invited to the kickoff of Shoreline’s 2017 Million Step Challenge this Saturday, April 29 at 9am at Paramount School Park, 15300 8th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155.

The Million Step Challenge officially runs May 1 – May 31, however, the kickoff event is your chance to complete an extra day’s worth of steps towards this fun fitness competition.

What is the Million Step Challenge?

The Million Step Challenge is a free month long event that invites people of all ages and abilities to walk as much as they can during the month of May in the name of health, fitness and friendly competition.

Participants compete against each other for prizes, as well as working together to reach the community goal of 5 million steps walked in one month’s time. New for 2017, the Million Step Challenge is expanding to allow participants to walk anywhere they want and log their totals in several new ways.

Using the online step tracker found on the webpage, walkers can log either their steps from a pedometer, miles, or their laps walked at Paramount School Park. There is no need to sign up and participants without internet access can log their totals on a paper version of the step tracker located at Paramount School Park (155th St and 8th Ave NE). Totals are posted online revealing who the current top steppers are and how far we are in reaching our 5 million step goal.
