Putting Our Best Foot Forward with Race to a Million

A million steps, $750 and the one reason we do what we do.

Putting Our Best Foot Forward with Race to a Million

Our NebraskaLand Bank “Race to a Million” started as a wellness initiative, but then it morphed something bigger and better: a community-minded well-being program.

For the next 90 days, July 1–Oct. 1, our Nebraska employees in North Platte and Kearney and Wyoming employees in Rock Springs are teaming up to put their best feet forward. We’re asking them to lace up their favorite pair of walking sneakers, join forces in teams of three and set out to be the first unit to get to the 1-million-step milestone—equivalent to walking the 475 miles between North Platte and Rock Springs on I-80!

The first team to reach a million steps on or before Oct. 1 wins bragging rights, a traveling trophy and $250 per person to give to an organization of their choice in the community they serve.

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.)

We’re excited to see which team will win—and which organizations we can impact. Follow our employees’ journey to 1 million steps on social media via #NLNBRaceToAMillion and #CBWYRaceToAMillion or by following the NebraskaLand Bank and Commerce Bank of Wyoming Facebook pages. Check back here each week to see how the competition stacks up and which team is stepping up the most!
