Take Steps Toward Ending Obesity
October 10, 2016
Do you get regular exercise by tracking your steps using a Fitbit or your iPhone? If so, you should participate in the ASMBS Foundation’s United We Step Challenge!
United We Step is a three-day virtual event from Monday, October 31 to Wednesday, November 2 that challenges you to focus on your daily physical activity, with the goal of raising funds for obesity research and education. Essentially, it gives you the chance to turn your steps into money for obesity awareness in America!
All you have to do is track your steps with a pedometer, smartphone or other device (Fitbit, smartwatch, etc.). At the end of each day, log your steps into your account. You can go through your regular routine while participating in a good cause!
Registration is open to everyone and costs nothing to enter. You are encouraged to raise at least $10 per day to support obesity research and professional education programs.
There will be prizes awarded for:
- Top Stepping Team
- Grand Prize Winner
- Top Fundraising Team
- Top Stepping Individuals
- Top Stepping State
Prizes range from a trophy for the “top stepping team”, an Apple watch sport for one grand prize winner and gift card raffles of as much as $250.
The greater number of steps and the more money you or your team raise, the better your chance of winning.
