Join the 160 Miles Across Vermont Challenge!
This challenge will be run outside of the Wellness Portal. Everyone Can Participate!
When: May 3 – June 13, 2021
Why: Join us for six weeks as you virtually walk your way across the state. We will focus on getting moving, learning about physical activity and unique places throughout Vermont to inspire your workouts. You can also win fun prizes for your participation!
What: You can choose to go for it and walk the full 320,000 steps to cross the state (you will need to average approximately 7,619 steps per day for all 42 days to hit this goal) OR you can choose to commit to your own personal goal over this time period. All exercise counts not just walking! Simply use the activity-to-steps conversion chart with your week one email. You can also register for three FREE optional webinars with local fitness expert Heather Main.
Each week you will receive one email with information on the following topics:
- Week 1: Motivation & Movement for Every BODY!
- Week 2: Physical Activity 101
- Week 3: Exploring the Great Outdoors
- Week 4: Find Your Strength
- Week 5: Be Flexible
- Week 6: Move for Life
Weekly Task: After reading the challenge email you will answer one question regarding the content and how it relates to your life.
Weekly Step Log: You will also receive a digital challenge tracker that makes logging and reporting your steps a breeze!
