One Bike, Ten Million Steps: Michigan Fitness Foundation Presents Detroit Bike to CARROT Winner

The Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF), with its mission to inspire Michiganders to live more active lives, recently launched a new mobile initiative using CARROT. During the month of May, the MFF conducted a contest in which CARROT users could donate 10,000 steps to receive one entry in a drawing for a free Detroit Bike. More than 10-million steps were redeemed by CARROT users during the 19-day contest with Kristy Simler of Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital being selected as the winner.
