A team of ten Physics faculty and staff finished 16th overall out of 836 teams in this year's Hit the Road with the Buckeyes Challenge as part of Your Plan 4 Health. The team called Physics Proclaimers completed the challenge with 7,285,000 total steps for a total of 3,642 miles. I'd say they all need a new pair of walking shoes.
Additionally three team members walked nearly or over 1M steps - looks like Stan Durkin never stops moving!
Congratulations to team leader Amanda Ponomarenko and the rest of the Physics Proclaimers: Stan Durkin, Camelia Selcu, Rebecca Daskalova, Ruth Leonard, Rachel Schrock, Jillian Fair, Michelle McCombs, Beatriz Burrola Gabilondo and Shelley Palmer.
A second team - Phenomenal in Physics also participated, logging 4,356,619 steps - congrats to participants Nicholas Smith, Robert Pancoast, Monice Coats, Nabil Boutaybi, Nathan Ryan, Rachel Page, Scott Cooney, Qadeer Ahmed, Lucinda Wallace and Ginevra Cochran.
Congratulations to everyone who participated.
