More than 153,000 total miles were walked during a fitness challenge this past semester among Lancaster County School District students.
Each student in grades three through 12 receive a pedometer, and data on the distances walked were recorded each week.
The aim was to increase physical activity among the youth. However, district personnel also participated.
The challenge, which ran from March 16 to April 10, was sponsored by the Carol White (Get Fit) Grant.
At the end of the challenge, participants had walked 153,208 miles total.
