Stadium Challenge
September 7, 2017
Noon-1:00 pm
Tom Osborne Field at Memorial Stadium (enter through Gate 15 in North Stadium)

We are kicking off this year's EveryMove activity challenge in Memorial Stadium with students, faculty and staff! Join us at this fabulous location to get a jumpstart on your EveryMove points by playing games that will be provided or walking/running the stairs–just have fun while being physically active! This event is hosted by Campus Recreation, in collaboration with Nebraska Athletics.

Pre-registration is requested: go.unl.edu/pgfz but walk-ins are welcome.

About the EveryMove Challenge

University of Nebraska–Lincoln and EveryMove@Work have joined forces to "perk" up the workplace! No, we're not talking about a new coffee machine – we're talking about a revolution to celebrate all kinds of physical activity, from gardening to marathon running, right in our office. Track your activity using any app or device you like (and connect to EveryMove) to join. See for yourself how good things come to those who sweat.

In the month of September our goal as a University is to log at least 90,000 collective activity points (this also happens to be roughly the number of seats in Memorial Stadium!) To put this into perspective, an individual who logs 30 min/day/5 days/week=750 points in a month. Recognition will be provided to all who achieve the 750 point goal, as well as to top colleges, and top performers. Create a team of at least 5 and compete as a group. Registration for the September Challenge begins Monday, September 4 or sign-up at the Kick-Off Event.

Challenge yourself to earn at least 750 points (equal to 30 minutes of activity, 3 days per week) and win prizes with the FREE EveryMove program. Track your activity to earn points, and we will send out weekly tips to help you keep your wellness goals in mind throughout the month. At the end of each monthly challenge, we will host a celebration to award prizes and have a sample of something nutritious.
