JKJ Nashville Walking Competition Summary

On October 19, 2014, 50 of the most intelligent, motivated and energized individuals in the Senior Living industry kicked off the National Leading Age Conference in Nashville, TN by putting on their walking shoes to participate in the JKJ Fitbit Walking Challenge.

Five teams of ten, made up of JKJ clients, prospects and employees competed to “out- step” each other over the course of three day conference. Daily updates were provided at JKJ’s booth which sparked a lot of spirited talk, friendly wagers and creative thinking throughout the competition.

The winning team, Pink-led by JKJ’s Patrick Mullen, walked a total of 462,871 steps (an average of over 15k steps per day per team member). Team members included: Patrick Mullen (JKJ), Megan Nessell (Cadbury Homes), Deb Reardanz (Clark-Lindsey), Nadia Geigler (Covenant Retirement), Nelson Cling (Mennonite Home), Edna Cristinzio (Foulkeways), Abby Loftus (Rockhill Mennonite), Lisa Keenan (JKJ), Jim Adamowicz (Piper Shores) and Cathleen Stewart (Pine Run). In addition to earning bragging rights, for their efforts, JKJ donated $1000 in their names to the National Alzheimer’s Foundation.

While not everyone was on the winning team, everyone won by increasing their daily step count, improving their health and having fun! To extend the competition, everyone was encouraged to continue using their fitbits during the month of November– more than half of the participants are still stepping!
