Motion text

That this House congratulates Twisted Blisters for winning the autumn Step Count Challenge, organised by Paths for All, Scotland’s national walking charity; notes that the five-strong team, which also won in 2019, is made up of Shetland Islands Council employees; believes that they fended off stiff competition from over 480 teams from across Scotland; understands that one of the group achieved one million steps in the four-week period that the walking challenge took place and that each member walked on average three times each day in order to get their steps in; notes the benefits of walking to both mental and physical health and its help in work towards the goal of a happier, healthier and greener Scotland; looks forward to the launch of the next Step Count Challenge in May 2022; and encourages other organisations and individuals to get their boots on and take part.
