We’re always impressed with Oakland University Faculty and Staff who participate in our programs. One of our summer programs, “OU Moves.. Walk to Mackinac” recently came to an end and we are beyond excited about the results.
There were 152 participants from departments all across campus. Each participant kept track of the steps they took for eight weeks.
Stephanie Willis, Wellness and Educational Outreach Coordinator, added up the total number of steps from all participants. The results? 32,174,136 steps. That’s 16,087 miles! 37 people walked 400,000+ steps.
The top five participants won a shopping spree at the Barnes and Noble on campus.
Here are the winners:
1st Place: Monica Haines (University Human Resources) – 941,560 steps
2nd Place: Sheryl Hugger (Biological Sciences) – 932,673 steps
3rd Place: Sharon Hiller (SEHS) – 804,865 steps
4th Place: Bill Johnson (First Year Advising Center) – 767,528 steps
5th Place: Paul Battle (Registrar) – 725,379 steps
Once again, great job to all Oakland University Faculty and Staff who participated!
