Girls Inc. of SWCT Girls walk to Hawaii as part of the Coca-Cola Step It Up Challenge!


As part of the Coca-Cola Step it Up Challenge, Girls Inc. of SWCT Girls added some fun and “walked” to Hawaii afterschool.  Close to 40 girls and staff members participated in the 6 week program that promoted healthy movement during their afterschool program, recording all of their movements with pedometers.  Girls were challenged to increase their steps by at least 25% during this program.  At the conclusion of the program, the girls logged just shy of 500,000 steps, enough to get them to Hawaii!!


In celebration of their success, the girls through a huge Luau party, right here in Waterbury!  Complete with music, grass skirts, tropical foods and games, the girls had a blast and enjoyed their accomplishment!  The best part is that the girls had so much fun, they continue to be up and active, with an eye on their next tropical visit.


The Cola-Cola Foundation has partnered with organizations that have a meaningful impact in communities around the globe. The Coca-Cola Foundation and Girls Inc. partnered this year to bring the Step It Up Challenge to our national network. A part of our Mind + Body initiative, this program is designed to encourage girls, along with staff, volunteers and family members, to increase their daily activity level by taking more steps.
