ABSTRACT
The article discusses the 2008 Global Corporate Challenge and focuses on the participation of "Employee Benefit News (EBN)" magazine staff in this team-based fitness challenge. This year's participants walked more than 61 billion steps, for a total of 24.5 million miles, 2.4 billion calories and more than 10 billion kilojoules of energy burned. To boost step averages, EBN team members tried a variety of tactics like, for editor Lydell Bridgeford, walking as many as two miles out of his way during his 45-minute walk to and from the office.
