Congratulations to ‘Game of Tones’ who came top of the leaderboard with 4,373,582 steps and were each given vouchers for Chopped and the Lunchtime Markets. Thanks to everyone who took part in the Healthy UCD challenge. We really hope you enjoyed it, got those extra steps into your day and were able to meet some colleagues across UCD.
