Move to Improve was supported via a Vidant Community Benefits Grant.  Its purpose was to increase awareness of physical activity as a part of a healthy lifestyle.  Participants reviewed the benefits of physical activity with school nurses at beginning of the year and vitals were taken for participants.  Participants provided monthly updates of activities and were provided “Move To Improve,” a resource for walking as a healthy activity by Robert Sweetgall.  Nurses documentation of introductory and monthly information shared with faculty and staff. And the goal was to Increase participation in physical activity of the staffs in DCS.   Staff members logged activity via a pedometer and sought to walk 1,000,000 footsteps or 500 miles in a year.  The activity was very successful.  The original goal was for 500 participants.  Over 800 staff members participated and walked and amazing 85,114,311 miles!
