HARRISBURG, Pa. (11/16/09)--During a 12-week, 10,000-step walking program, 39 employees of the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) walked millions of steps, which equaled thousands of miles. For a little rivalry, the PCUA building competed against employees in the Pacul Services Inc. (PSI) building (Life is a Highway Nov. 13). The PSI building employees won with 14,232,172 steps. With roughly 2,000 steps in a mile, they could have walked from Augusta, Maine, to San Diego (3,270 miles) and back. The PCUA group walked 10,388,809 steps, equivalent to a roundtrip walk from Augusta, Maine, to El Paso, Texas (2,630 one way). The daily average was 7,516 steps or 3.8 miles; and weekly--52,609 steps, 26.6 miles. The 12-week overall average was 631,307 steps for 318.8 miles, which would be a little farther than Philadelphia to Pittsburgh (614,000 steps for 310 miles). The goal of the program was to increase individual physical activity, and eventually reach 10,000 steps per day, PCUA said.
