Stepping up for the trek

Friday, 24 July 2015 Staff > News > Overview > 2015 > 07

More than 700 ECU staff have walked around the world four times in just over four weeks as part of the Globetrekker Challenge.

The gamified wellness program, partly developed by ECU graduate Fleta Solomon, aims to get staff walking more than 10,000 steps each day.

It uses bluetooth activity trackers to record people’s movements to improve employees’ health and wellness.

At the halfway point of the program 64 per cent of staff are reaching the 10,000 step goal. As a whole, ECU staff are averaging more than 12,000 every day.

That works out to more than 220 million steps and a distance of more than 160,000km.

Ms  Solomon studied Exercise Physiology at ECU and worked in occupational health and safety in the resources industry before helping found Globetrekker Challenge in 2014.
