Staff from eDOC Innovations and CU*Answers hit the pavement again to participate in the five week No Lazy Days Steps Challenge with the goal of raising money for Vermont’s local refugee resettlement program, USCRI. All steps from all participants resulted in a total of 9,609,079 steps (about 4,805 miles!) leading to a donation of $720.68 to USCRI Vermont.

This year’s Top Individual Stepper Award was presented to Keith Kramer, who tallied 678,974 steps. Taking second and third place respectively were Ramon Cano and Karl Johnson. The Most Improved Stepper Award went to Mark Fierro, and Rookie of the Year was awarded to Jake McMahon.

“I personally love the No Lazy Days in Steps Challenge because it’s a great way to shake off the rust that comes from a long Vermont winter,” stated Tristan Kiel, developer and Activity Committee Chairman at eDOC Innovations. “We also get to promote health and well-being in the process, all while donating to a cause we feel is important.”

The No Lazy Days Step Challenge reflects eDOC Innovation’s concern for the local community, one of the core cooperative principles.
