BEN Irving decided to take a few thousand steps towards better health, when he took part in the 10,000 Steps program.

Ben, who is an assistant accountant at Hillcrest Private Hospital, said he spent most of the day on a chair and thought it was time to get moving.

Ben, and staff from the hospital, took part in the challenge and were given a 10,000 Steps pedometre grant from the State Government as part of their Healthier. Happier. Workplaces initiatives.

Ben was the leader in the challenge, increasing his steps by 67%.

If you would like more information on the 10,000 Steps program and the pedometer grants, head to www.10000steps.org.au.
