Students and faculty members paid to register teams of five to compete in the annual pedometer challenge during the last week of October. Each team member wore a pedometer from Tuesday until Friday – the team with the most steps stepped, won. This year’s winner was the team from Garbonzo’s in the AnX.

Jenelle Dacquay-Neveux, coordinator of the event and Co-President of the Kinesiology Students Association presented a cheque for $2055.00 to the United Way of Winnipeg for their efforts – more than double the amount raised in previous years. “This is a great way to connect with our professors outside the classroom, promote active living and support a great community organization,” said Jenelle Dacquay-Neveux.

“We are certainly proud of our student associations and the work they do to promote a positive university experience and an active living lifestyle for students in the Faculty of Kinesiology” said Dean David Fitzpatrick.
