25 Days of Fitness: April 6-30
The Department of Recreation Services, Healthy Monday Syracuse, the Syracuse University Wellness Initiative and Summit Federal Credit Union are sponsoring a campuswide event, 25 Days of Fitness, to kick-start the beginning of the spring season and encourage individuals to challenge themselves to a healthier lifestyle. The dates are April 6-30.
Syracuse University, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and Upstate Medical University students, faculty and staff will track their daily distances converted to miles through walking, running, rolling, hiking or climbing.
Participants are encouraged to register as a team and report daily their distance through the site. The team that reports the greatest distance upon completion of 25 days will receive a trophy to display in their office. Additional prizes will be provided to the most-improved teams as well as the top individual finishers. Teams will consist of at least four individuals. For teams with more than four individuals registered, the top four distances will count toward the team total distance.
