Seven campuses, five days, five million steps. That was the aim as students and staff at Cornwall College stepped up to the students’ union’s pedometer challenge. The result saw them smash the target, clocking up almost 6.5 million steps – equivalent to walking from Land’s End to John O’Groats 3.7 times.
Nat Mitchell, student participation officer, said: “This was a novel way of encouraging students and staff to think about their fitness levels by recording just how many steps they were taking each day.”
Cornwall College is part of Healthy FE, a national framework which aims to improve the health and wellbeing of those in the further education (FE) sector.
