one million steps walk

The Rusk Eagles High Stepper is the name of our student-led exercise club. Our goal is to reach one million steps before the school year ends. Each school day morning, the students walk for 60 minutes before school starts. We have different benchmarks we try to obtain each month. Each student was given a watch pedometer to track his/her own steps. After reaching different benchmarkers, the students receive different incentives (t-shirts, book bags, health books, etc.). We started off with five students and have increased to 25 students. The students really enjoy the the club.
