Step Out Challenge @ Everywhere
Sep 1 – Sep 30 all-day
Step Out Challenge @ Everywhere

Walk to class or the coffee shop instead of taking the T. Meet up with friends to turn your walk into a chance to socialize. Make a special playlist of walking music to help motivate you. You’ll feel more accomplished/healthier, and be surprised by how easy it is to walk for wellness.

Chapters will compete against each other to see who can walk the most total steps this month. The winning chapter will win lunch and the individual ASDA member with the most steps will win a $100 gift card.
