Tri-Net, Team Sharks, Walk for Wobbly Feet!

TriNet had a holiday fitness challenge (11/17/14 – 1/16/15) where colleagues joined teams, used fit bits and worked towards 10,000 steps per day or way more!  Steps could be earned by walking/running while wearing fit bits or manually entering walking/running/cycling/swimming on the exercise tracker page.

When teams were asked which charity they wanted to walk for, local Sarasota Tri-Net employees, Team Sharks, immediately suggested Wobbly Feet especially because the goal was to support kids and ideally go grass roots.  Team Captain, Jen, and others walked 40,000 steps a day where only 10,000 would keep us on track. “Frankly, our walk for Wobbly Feet became an obsession and we’ve been working hard since November 17th,” expressed Team Sharks member, and ongoing Wobbly Feet supporter, Erin McGinty.

At the finish line, Team Sharks came in 2nd place and by mid-February, TriNet will be donating $2,000.00 to Wobblyfeet.org as a result!

Erin explained, “The best part of this competition besides working hard for our health, was that the mission and importance of Wobbly Feet reached 20 people in California, Nevada, New Jersey and Florida who never before knew about this cause!”

A huge thank you to Tri-Net for hosting such a fun challenge and to Team Sharks for supporting Wobbly Feet one step at a time!
