For the entire month of February, Red River College staff and students are meeting the challenge of reaching 7,000 steps per day! This month long challenge encourages you to be active and reduce sedentary behavior in your life. Need more incentive? No problem! We have some great prizes lined up for participants. The more days you reach 7000 steps, the better the prizes! Think reaching 7000 steps in one day is too difficult? Think again…Here are some simple ways you can do it: Walking, running, sports, fitness class, have a walking meeting, working out, take the stairs, park further away, walking lunch hour…
During the challenge, we encourage participants to send in a pic of you and/or your co-workers, fellow students, friends and family being active and achieving your daily 7,000 steps to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a brief synopsis and be entered to win a weekly prize! Your pic may make the blog and inspire other participants to Get Movin!
Week 2 Prize Winner: Kimberley Pinel
“Well if your going to run 10 km in crazy high winds, open fields, and -30 windchill you better wear onesies! My friends, which included another RRC nursing instructor (Tracy Palmer) joined me as we raised money for the Fort Whyte Alive’s educational programs. That was a whole lotta steps in a whole lotta cold but s’mores were the reward!
I am on the left crouched in trail pic and on the left end getting s’more ready!”
Congrats to Kimberley and thanks to all participants who submitted photos. Good luck to everyone in the Get Movin Challenge!!
