Get Moving Challenge
Will you take the challenge?
August 30 - September 26, 2020
The University of North Dakota and Altru have launched a partnership to bring together ideas, resources and opportunities to promote health and wellness across our organizations and the larger community. The Get Moving Challenge is another one of our collaborations created to encourage and promote lifelong wellbeing. We are excited for you to participate in our walking/step conversion program!
The Get Moving Challenge is a 4-week challenge to increase your physical activity. You will keep track of your steps, covert them from other forms of activity if necessary. The goal is to get you moving or get you moving MORE.
It's open to everyone! UND staff, faculty, students, and their friends and family.
You can register as an individual or form a team (up to 6). The team can be made up of coworkers, family members, student workers, etc...it's up to you.
Steps get logged-in weekly or daily on the GET MOVING login page.
You can keep track of your steps by using a pedometer, activity tracker, or cell phone app. Use this conversion chart to change activities into steps. Here are some informational sheets on strength training and flexibility. Online registration is encouraged...a paper version is available HERE.
- GROUPS: Your results will be compiled with others in your group. If you are a walker, you will be compared with other walkers...not someone running to train for a marathon. You can still join a team & team standings won't be affected by which group you are in. Members on a team may be in different groups. We recognize that all our participants have different physical levels of ability and want to make sure to all particiants are included. Please refer to this conversion chart to convert alternative forms of movement into steps for the challenge.
- CHALLENGES: A little friendly competition never hurt. If you are a member of a team, you have the ability to challenge another team(s) at any time during the challenge. An email will be sent to notify them of the challenge and you can track your status along the way.
- ELECTRONIC TROPHIES: Keeping you motivated throughout the challenge! How many trophies can you earn for your trophy case? Earned by achieving various milestones such as increasing your steps from the previous week, leading in team challenges, and total steps.
- PRIZES: Weekly team/group, individual & six $100 Grand Prizes (2 for students, 2 for staff/faculty/friends/family at UND, and 2 for employees at Altru). All prizes are awarded by random drawings of those who have entered steps. .
- REMINDERS: Don't miss another deadline. You will receive an email reminding you to log your steps!
