The week of September 3-9 is West Michigan Stair Week, an event to promote healthy living by using the stairs.

The event is sponsored by Heart of West Michigan United Way. Lindsey DesArmo, health and wellness coordinator for Grand Valley, said it is also a good segue to the university’s annual Pedometer Challenge.

Registration for the challenge begins September 9. Teams of four faculty and staff members are encouraged to log their steps online, competing for prizes throughout the six-week challenge.
