SCU vs. USF Fitness & Wellness Challenge

Every Minute Counts - 2014

Join us for the second annual SCU vs. USF Challenge, “Every Minute Counts.” During the month of February, we will once again be taking on the faculty/staff of the University San Francisco to see which university is more active. Last year we came up short in total minutes, let’s turn that around this year!

Join us for the Fitness & Wellness Challenge Kick Off

Monday, February 3rd from 11:30 AM-1:30 PM

California Mission Room in Benson Center

Everyone who registers from January 17th-February 3rd will have their name put into a drawing for a Fitbit. If we have 368 (double last year's participants) employees sign up by February 3rd, we will add another Fitbit to the drawing.

The first 150 attendees will receive a Mission to Wellness water bottle

You have 2 options for tracking your minutes of movement:

What does Every Minute Counts exactly mean?

“Every Minute Counts,” this includes anything that makes you move your body, burn calories and increase your heart rate, such as climbing stairs, playing sports, fast paced walking, jogging, swimming, biking, strength training, heavy gardening and even yoga. Doing some sort of moderate exercise for at least 150 minutes each week can help keep your heart pumping and in good health.

But no one said those minutes have to be all at once! Find simple ways to weave a bit more exercise into your busy day:

Every Minute Counts!

Check-in throughout the day, every day, to move your team up the leaderboard! The University with the highest total number of minutes wins!

Let's Go Broncos!
