Walking, fast or slow, is wonderful exercise.
There are plenty of benefits, like cutting heart disease risk, lowering blood pressure and reducing Alzheimers risk.
The advantages of walking were made a little bit sweeter when GlobalHealth approached Oklahoma City Public Schools (OKCPS) faculty and staff.
Walk for your health, said the Oklahoma-based health maintenance company. We will give your schools some hard cash.
OKCPS responded, We are ready to move!
During the five-month Lets Get Moving challenge, OKCPS employees walked 95,173 miles, NewsOK.com reported.
Mark Twain Elementary School averaged 440 miles per participating employee. Now, GlobalHealth is plugging $1,000 into the schools playground for improvements.
Walking an average of 398 miles per participant, Emerson High School took second place. Now, the school has $500 to spend.
Coolidge Elementary staff averaged 305 miles per participant, receiving $250 bucks.
Thats what we call partners in action.
