Did we reach 150 Million Steps Together in May?

The first year that Homer Steps Up! was a community walking challenge, we set a goal of 100 Million Steps Together in May, and fell short by just under 10 million steps. After two more years of PASSING that goal, we set and reached a 125 million community step goal. Curious how far we could really go, this year we tentatively set the 150 Million Steps Together goal saying "it's okay if we don't reach it, we've done that before".

LOOK AT US NOW! As a community, with around 700 participants over four weeks, we walked 164,202,611 steps - more than THREE TRIPS AROUND THE EARTH!!!

And the moment we've all been waiting for - the Final Results of Homer Steps Up! 2021!
