What Is Steps Out?
Steps Out is a unique web log-in/tracking system developed by Edis Computers of Penticton that makes it exciting for participants and EASY for organizers to enter their steps and activity each day and see on a map the equivalent distance they have traveled.
People all over British Columbia are Stepping Out with this Unique, Creative Web Solution that allows the participant to see in a visual way the progress they are making towards a common destination.
There is a buzz around town as people compare the kilometers they have travelled and the cities they have reached.
The independent nature of the program and the use of creative web service make the Steps Out Program easy to coordinate, thus giving the organizers time to create value added healthy living opportunities. In Penticton, Group walks like “Saturday mornings with the Mayor”, and the “Easy Rock Walk” kick-off the fall and spring seasons. Many of these have kept going as people got to know each other. Other organizers have used "Pins" from Cities along the way, and corporate prizes as ways of motivating their steppers.

Our Provincial Government issued a challenge to all British Columbians last year with “Legacies Now” – the challenge to get B.C. fit and healthy by the 2010 Olympics.
Towns, Cities and Businesses throughout the Province have addressed this challenge in different ways, and here in Penticton they introduced the Penticton “Steps Out” Program. Their success was rewarded with the “Excellence in Innovation Award” from the CPRA.
