Step It Up Campaign Launches in Brooklyn

Thanks to the generosity of donors and supporters, nearly 90 sophomores at Achievement First University Prep High School in Brooklyn, NY are using pedometers to track their physical activity.

Here's an update on our pedometer program so far: 

  • Last week, pedometers were distributed to students during their PE class. They learned about their devices and measured how many steps they usually take per day.
  • From their measured baselines, students set pedometer goals to reach by the end of the program. 
  • Students are expected to carry their pedometers with them at all times and to record their steps on a daily basis for one month.
