2012 saw CFA participate in the Global Corporate Challenge for the first time with 17 teams across the network competing in the active challenge.

Since the GCC started, over 950,000 people across 3,400 organisations in 105 countries have benefited from the GCC, and each year, more and more make the GCC a cornerstone of their commitment to workplace health and wellbeing.  Teams of 7 commit to wearing a pedometer for the 16 week period and record their daily step count online.

The most ‘active’ CFA team award went to Hume Team 1, consisting of Dee Verhagen, Lyn Brereton, Nicole Conway, Stewart Krelszheim, Sandra O’Connor, Andrea Muskee and Robyn Hobbs.  Together, they amassed a whopping total of 10, 385,174 steps over the 16 week program.  This averaged out to be 13,297 steps per person, per day.

Second place saw NWMR – Team 1, led by Tina Marchington with an average of 12,785 steps per person, per day.  In third place, Head Quarters Team 4, captained by Deb Parkin, with an average of 12,337 steps per day.

Overall, the 17 teams amassed a grand total of:

  • 123,479,915 steps
  • 79,027 kilometre travelled
  • 20,744,626 kilojoules burnt

In other words, the 17 CFA teams collectively walked across the United States 21 times.

We would like to congratulate all teams for their participating in the global movement and hope to see even more teams take up the challenge in 2013.
