About This Activity

Participate in the #STEPUPBIG Virtual Run/Walk Challenge

It's not too late to sign up!  Break out those running, walking or hiking shoes to become a Defender of Potential! On July 4, we kicked off our #STEPUPBIG Challenge with a bang! The challenge is easy - a minimum of 1 mile every day through Labor Day (September 7). Start anytime this summer by committing to run, walk and/or hike at least one mile, every day! You'll be getting active on your own time and at your own pace and without location restrictions!  Can you do more than one mile? Of course! But one mile is all you need to make it count.

One daily mile is more powerful than you can imagine.  It represents your strength to self-motivate, crush excuses, and follow through on your goals.  Be sure to include your family and encourage others to join your efforts! Challenge a non-running, walking or hiking friend with an easy one mile a day goal or enjoy an after-dinner stroll around the neighborhood with your family.  Even if you accept the challenge solo, you’re accepting a daily commitment to treat and take care of yourself all summer.

Joining us after our July 4th kick-off?  No worries!  The goal is a mile a day, so join anytime throughout the next 6 weeks as long as you get that daily mile in!  

Now's the time!  Register as an individual or join a team and commit to walking that 1 mile a day - that's it!  No additional fundraising is required to be a part of the event.  Of course, if you'd like to invite others to support your efforts, we've made that optional, we're grateful for your participation either way!

Here's how it works for Individuals:
1. Register for the event as an individual and run or walk your one mile a day - that's all that's required!
2. Submit your results for each leg of your challenge as you go so that you don't have to keep track of your mileage on your own. Please be sure to add up your time as you go and enter it at the top each time.  Once you have completed the 66 mile challenge,  click on the "get finisher certificate" and you'll have earned bragging rights to say you accomplished the #STEPUPBIG Challenge.

Here's how it works for Teams/Groups:
1. Choose your teammates and come up with a fun team name. The first person to register creates the team. After the team has been created, each team member can join the team during their individual registration process.
2. Once all team members are registered, each team member gets moving where they want and when they want to accomplish the one mile a day challenge. 
3. Each team member should submit your results for each leg of your challenge as you go so that you don't have to keep track of your mileage on your own. Please be sure to add up your time as you go and enter it at the top each time.  Once every member of your team has completed the 66 mile challenge, submit your results to get your finisher certificate and you'll have earned bragging rights to say you and your team accomplished the #STEPUPBIG Challenge.
