January Step Challenge!

New month, new challenge! For the month of January we are encouraging fitness and the RCM Step Challenge! Our challenge is to do 10,000 steps in a day. Our main goal is to keep active every day!

To find out more about the challenge, come to our next meeting for more details or email

To help encourage your involvement, below are fun facts about the benefits of walking everyday:

- A 15-min walk can curb chocolate and sugar cravings

- Walking can boost creativity by up to 60%

- 30 min walk is just as effective as antidepressant medication in relieving symptoms of major depression

- Studies have shown that exercise positively affects the levels of certain mood-enhancing neurotransmitters in the brain. Exercise may also boost feel good endorphins, release tension in muscles, help you sleep better and reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

- Walking a mile a day burns 100 calories which could help you lose ten pounds a year without changing your eating habits. Additionally, if you add 2000 more steps to your regular activity, you may never gain another pound.
