State Representative Dustin Manwaring donated funds earned as part of the 2017 Steps for Schools Challenge to Wilcox Elementary in Pocatello.
Rep. Manwaring logged more than 330,000 steps (155 miles) in February as part of the program.
In an interview with the Idaho State Journal, Rep. Manwaring said, “I was excited to accept the challenge and more excited to stand in front of the third graders at Wilcox Elementary today and talk about accepting challenges, working hard and staying active.”
In all, legislators walked more than 12 million steps during the Steps for Schools Challenge. That’s more than enough to get everyone from Boise to Washington, D.C., and back to Boise again.
