Nothing is stopping this gentleman from reaching his fitness goals! Mr. Robert White of Dunwoody Place, a Pegasus Senior Living community in Atlanta, reached his 10 millionth step with cheers and applause on Wednesday, April 8. Community team members wearing PPE gear, fellow residents and Robert’s son proudly watched the senior taking his 10 millionth step in the parking lot while practicing social distancing.
Robert is reaching his 10 millionth step in a very timely manner! On March 30, it was Take a Walk in the Park Day and on April 1, it was National Walking Day. Robert began tracking his steps using a pedometer in June 2018. When he started living at Dunwoody Place, he began counting his steps as a daily routine.
Normally people try to reach 10,000 steps a day. But he takes that goal a step further – on an average day he reaches 16,000 steps! Mr. Robert estimates that he has walked 90 marathons with all his steps so far combined.
