To participate, fans should:

Steps for Charity Challenge

For good health, taking 10,000 steps per day is recommended…which is approximately the number of steps taken when walking 18 holes of golf!

Blank Children’s Hospital is asking for your help in getting kids of all ages moving through its  “Steps for Charity Challenge” at the 2017 Principal Charity Classic.

During last year’s tournament, more than 24.8 MILLION steps were logged by players, caddies, spectators, volunteers and tournament staff.

And in 2017? We’re upping the goal to 30 MILLION steps!

Steps will be counted on Friday and Saturday of tournament week, and United Healthcare will donate 10,000 pedometers (5,000 available at the main spectator entrance on both Friday and Saturday) to those who don’t already log steps with a Fit Bit, Nike Fuel Band or other device.

And the best part? Premier Credit Union and the Principal Charity Classic will donate a total of $15,000 to Blank Children’s Hospital if this year’s goal is reached.

Learn more at the tournament gates and get ready to step it forward!
