350 Million Steps, Greener Planet, Countless Smiles: Walkathon 2023 Concludes in Triumph!
With the final strides across time zones, Nov 5, 2023, marks the closing of the Vantage Fit Global Corporate Virtual Walkathon 2023.
The event was nothing short of a spectacle, with over 2300 participants across 36 companies, forming 43 teams.
The footsteps echoed far and wide as participants from North America, Europe, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, and Africa joined the wellness challenge. Walkathon 2023 stood as a rallying point for employers and employees to unite to improve the world.
The Greater Objective of Pursuing Employee Wellness and Building a Greener Planet
An astounding 350,000,000 steps were taken collectively during this Walkathon. That’s roughly 266,000 kilometers in distance - enough to circle the earth not once, not twice, but SIX times!
The massive effort is not just a stroll in the park; we're talking about burning 12 million calories, equivalent to 20,000 Big Macs.
The third installment of the Walkathon was more than just a fitness challenge. It was an opportunity for organizations and employees to come togehter, and positively impact the world.
Each step contributes to a greener planet, as trees will be planted globally based on this cumulative effort.
Beyond the impressive step count, the walkathon carries another profound purpose. The idea is to build a healthier workforce, spread awareness about employee well-being, and encourage individuals to set on a wellness journey.
