Healthy Upstate Carolina invites you to participate in the 9th Annual “Walk Upstate” program, which begins on Monday, January 16, 2016 and concludes on Sunday, April 30, 2016.
"Walk Upstate" has enjoyed overwhelming support and success during past events for the previous three years. During that time, walkers logged a total of 114,910 miles!
The program is a 15-week contest sponsored by USC Upstate. The contest serves as a means of improving the health of employees through physical activity. The goal of the program is to motivate employees to walk at least one mile a day or a minimum of 100 miles in 15 weeks. Other forms of cardiovascular (aerobic) exercise are encouraged: 20 minutes of aerobic exercise is the equivalent of one mile. Upon completion of the program, teams will be treated to a delicious, healthy lunch at the Roël Pavilion, weather permitting.
Employees, participating on teams with a designated team captain, form and name their own teams with no more than 8 members per team. Individual mileage, recorded weekly, accumulates and serves to foster motivation and healthy competition between teams. If you are interested in participating, but need help forming a team, please let us know. Team mileage is reported to Lauren Greene.
