“Step It Up”: Take the 10K Steps-a-Day Challenge, Earn Chance at Prizes
As February is American Heart Month, Rutgers Recreation is encouraging the university community to "Step It Up" by committing to take 10,000 steps daily for a week. A total of 10,000 steps equals about 5 miles (400–500 calories), the daily recommended exercise by the American Heart Association and Centers for Disease Control. Rutgers Recreation will provide rewards for committing to a healthier lifestyle. First, pledge to take 10,000 steps daily, then log your steps each day from February 13 through February 19. Rutgers Recreation will present three daily rewards (21 in total) for logging steps. In addition, for every 10,000 steps you track, you earn one entry for a grand prize drawing on February 20. Winners must show proof of steps taken via a tracker of their choice (phone, fitness apps, Fitbit app, etc.). As a bonus, early pledgers are entered for a chance to win a prize. Learn more and pledge here.
