  • Weekly nutrition and physical activity tips

  • An online step/nutrition tracker

  • Incentive to get moving!


Team Guidelines

Form your departmental teams now! Prizes will be awarded throughout the summer for teams with the highest average steps per team member! 
  • Teams can be any size you wish.

  • Be creative and name your team! It's also a good idea to have a team captain.


How Many Steps Do I Need?

There is no maximum or minimum. However, challenge yourself to walk as much as you can based on these guidelines:

  • GOOD 6,000 steps/day 42,000 steps/week
  • BETTER 8,000 steps/day 56,000 steps/week
  • EXCELLENT 10,000 steps/day 70,000 steps/week

Remember that the number of steps above is meant to motivate you to walk more everyday. Don't be discouraged if you find that you walk fewer than 6,000 steps/day. Knowing the number of steps you get should help you feel motivated to walk more. Focus on trying to reach your personal goals. There is no minimum number of steps required. Just give it a try and do your best.

All participants will receive weekly motivational e-mails and will qualify to win weekly incentives.

Finish the ten-week log, submit a copy in person, by campus mail, or by fax to the SRSC Rm. 115 by 5 PM on August 5, 2018.
