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 Winners: Carrie Schaepe, Taryn Presley and Chris Snell
From Carrie: ” Taryn Presley and I are taking the RRC Rec Services Self Defense Class led by RRC’s Security Officer Chris Snell. We took some photos this week, as you can see we are taking the Get Movin Challenge seriously and are also learning how to be personally safe at the same time! Win, Win!”
