Participants recognized for “taking the stairs” in HSPH eco-campaign


June 29, 2010 — More than 150 HSPH members competed in this year’s “Take the Stairs” campaign, an effort organized by the green team EcoOpportunity. Participants formed teams and then walked the stairs whenever possible, instead of using the elevator. Team members that climbed the equivalent of Mount McKinley (20,320 ft) were entered into a raffle for prizes such as tickets to AMC movie theaters, IMAX theater, New England Aquarium, Museum of Science, and Six Flags. All participants received reusable ceramic coffee cups.
