Steptember Challenge

The Beehive Steptember Challenge

The Beehive Steptember Challenge was set up to encourage staff working from The Beehive (Thurrock CVS) to adopt healthier habits and increase the number of steps they were taking.

The CVS in Thurrock sit on the Active Thurrock Network and were offered the chance to use the Active Essex Activity Tracker to complete a step challenge throughout the month of September. Active Essex set them a challenge of 1,000,000 steps to be logged in September 2019, which was achieved.

Although some of the initiatives we have introduced at Thurrock CVS offices appear small, they contribute to healthier habits and ultimately better health and wellbeing. Obesity and inactivity are a worrying trend in Thurrock as well as nationally and it’s important that we support residents to be healthier but also to model behaviours which is why we began by looking at ourselves first.
