Thirteen area school districts compete in wellness challenge
Southeast Service Cooperative (SSC) is coordinating a walking challenge between twenty of its member organizations. Thirteen soautheastern Minnesota school districts and seven city and county members are participating in two separate challenges. The contests, which were held for the first time last year, run the month of January, and are based on the number of steps walked by participating members. Steps are turned in weekly to each site's coordinator who in turn sends the steps to SSC. A trophy and an article in SSC's newsletter, The Cooperative Connection, will be awarded to the top placing city or county organization and top school district.
Challenge coordinator Nicole LaChapelle shared that "SSC's January walking challenge is a great opportunity to kick the year off with a fun, wellness-focused activity. The friendly competition is a great incentive for folks to get moving!"
The winning teams will be announced on Monday, February 4.
The groups listed below are participating in the challenge:
School Districts: Cannon Falls, Fillmore Central, Grand Meadow, Kingsland, Lake City, Lewiston-Altura, Mabel Canton, Medford, Plainview-Elgin-Millville, Pine Island, Rochester, Rushford-Peterson and Zumbrota-Mazeppa.
Cities/County Members: City of Albert Lea, City of Byron, City of Preston, Fillmore County, Freeborn County, Rice-Steele 911 Center and Wabasha County.
