We welcome your ideas and your participation.

    Between January 1st and May 31st the wellness committee is offering the challenge of logging your steps/miles for a wellness challenge. Just for random fun sake, we're HEADED NORTH on HWY 97 deep into BC to Moberly Lake (725 miles). Not sure if anyone's been there (doubtful), but we'd like everyone to make the goal of logging enough mileage everyday starting January 1st to get there virtually.  Once a few people log some mileage, we'll create a google map so you can see where you are in relation to everyone else. We'll also send updates. Please start logging your daily progress January 1st and come back each day to log. Keep track of your steps as well as your daily walking/running workouts via your watch, your phone, or a pedometer...whatever works best for you! It's the honor system. To complete the challenge, you'll need to average 4.76 miles per day. The American Heart Association recommends that we walk 5 miles a day, so this will get you awfully close to that!

Please make sure you enter the same email address each time that is spelled correctly:)  A cool tee shirt will be given to anyone completing the challenge at the end of the school year.
