Our Journey to One Million Steps

Once again we are stepping up in a Comm(unity) Minded “Race to a Million”

Our Journey to One Million Steps

It’s that time again for NLB’s annual “Race to a Million”.  Last year “Race to a Million” started as a wellness initiative and quickly became a way to use our competitive nature here at NLB for a good cause.  Our race has been transformed to something bigger and better: a community-minded well-being program.

For the next 90 days NLB teams of three will be lacing up their walking shoes and putting their best feet forward and race to be the first team to reach one million steps.  The first team to reach a million steps will win bragging rights, and a total of $750 for the team to donate to the nonprofit of their choice.  That $250 for each team member! 

Each participant will submit their weekly step count, and the teams’ “score” will be their collective average of steps taken (e.g. If Person A walks 35,000 steps, Person B 40,000 and Person C 45,000 in a week, the team’s score for the week would be 40,000.)

In case you were wondering, by taking one million steps we’ll travel right around 500 miles with most of us staying right here in town! Needless to say, we will be taking the scenic route everywhere.  Last year the winning team walked circles around everyone and dominated the entire race!  They donated to, RDAP, Paws-itive Partners, and the Red Desert Humane Society.

We’re excited to see which team will win this year’s race—and which organizations we can impact. Follow our employees’ journey to one million steps on social media via #NLNBRaceToAMillion or by following the NebraskaLand Bank Facebook page. Check back here each week to see how the competition stacks up and which team is stepping up the most!
