Ready to walk? Grab some teammates and take on this challenge

September 6, 2011 at 4:55 pm


What better way to enjoy this beautiful fall weather than a brisk walk around the block? Lace up some comfortable footwear, folks, because the Beloit College Walking Challenge is about to start.

The challenge is open to (and encouraged for) all Beloit College employees looking to be more active, get healthier, and possibly lose a couple of pounds here and there while having fun doing it.

The Walking Challenge is sponsored by the Beloit College Wellness Committee, and will begin Sept. 19 and run through Oct. 28.

Each individual participant will be a part of a team and will receive an information packet including:

  • Walking log
  • An activity conversion chart
  •  Walking challenge rules

The team that logs the most steps will receive a grand prize. Other prizes will be awarded for individual accomplishments.

Participants will receive a pedometer through the Beloit College Wellness Committee.

Each team will consist of no less than 2 and no more than 3 members. Teams will choose a name and designate a team member to be responsible for:

  • Team Registration
  • Weekly reporting of each member’s total steps

Get your team together and register by contacting Terri Dahl in Human Resources at dahlt@beloit.edu by Sept. 16, 2011.
