2018 Walk & Ride Challenge Winners

On October 26, this year's Walk & Ride Challenge wrapped up and our winners were determined the following week. Our Grand Prize winning teams are calculated by using the average number of steps each member has taken. That's each team member's total steps added up, and divided by the number of members on the team.
