One Million Steps Challenge

The Special Olympics Europe Eurasia health team, supported by athlete leaders, challenged participants to take one million steps over the course of the conference. Using the Walker Tracker app combined with other devices, they tracked participants’ steps from morning to evening and encouraged them to eat healthily and drink plenty of water along the way. By the end of the conference, our spritely participants had exceeded all expectations achieving a staggering 1.5 million steps in two days!
