More than 120 individuals took part in a walking challenge Saturday morning.
As part of the challenge, the participants’ cumulative steps were compared to those of walkers in Bullitt and Shelby Counties as part of a friendly competition to see who would have the most steps.
Saturday’s walkers total 784,591 steps, while walkers in Bullitt County totaled 315,563 steps and walkers in Shelby totaled 168,069.
Henry County will receive a trophy that will be exhibited in various locations for the next year.
The walking challenge will take place again next year.
The Henry County winners for the 2012 walk are: Elllie Brammell, Heather Baxter, Anita Wilson, Melissa Ramsey, Joy James, Stan Snowden, Renie Wright, Kurtland Bishop, Justin Asher, and David Uehlin. Congratulations to all of the winners and to all who walked; some for the first time and others beating their former records.
