Stepping toward a healthier community
The annual pedometer challenge took place over the Mayfest weekend, and Katie Yeckley, Tobacco Prevention & Control Grant coordinator for the Petersburg Indian Association (PIA) ran the event this year.
"This is my first year doing this," she said. "The children were so excited to get a pedometer, but even if they didn't do the challenge they were so excited."
The competition started last Thursday and ended Sunday night, and logs were accepted through Monday. PIA used grant money to put on the event, and partnered with multiple organizations, including the Alaska Quit Line.
