NPHW: Steps Plus: Hofstra Fitness and Health Challenge 2019

Exercise is Medicine Month this year is in April, which coincides with National Public Health Week! In recognition of these events, the undergraduate Exercise Science and graduate Health Administration programs will be sponsoring the Steps Plus: Hofstra Fitness and Health Challenge - a two-week team competition (teams of 2-5 people including current undergraduate or graduate students, faculty and staff) from Wednesday, March 27th to Wednesday, April 10th, 2019.

The goal of the challenge is to accumulate as many steps as possible each day throughout the two weeks (a team average for each day will be recorded). In addition to steps acquired through walking, jogging, and other activities throughout the day, steps will be 'awarded' for time spent exercising at the Hofstra Fitness Center and for completing health challenges posted daily on a Blackboard page. Gift prizes of $300, $200, and $100 will be awarded to the teams finishing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd! To sign up, please go to: (all team members should sign up individually). 

Please direct any questions to Dr. Katie Sell at Katie.Sell[at]
