One thing I thought was cool is that Humana, the healthcare company, is doing the Humana Walkit Challenge, where golf fans attending the tournament can pick up a free pedometer at one of the multiple Humana Walkit stations on the course during tournament week, and Humana will track the steps of each participating fan for a chance at earning a brand new playground in an area of need in their local community.
This year’s Humana Walkit Challenge will be a national competition to see which 2013 PGA TOUR event generates the most steps taken by fans. The tournament with the most recorded steps will win a new multigenerational playground from Humana and KaBOOM! – a national nonprofit organization that has built more than 2,200 playgrounds.
So, get out and walk, New Orleans!
