10,000 Steps Challenge for Staff

May 1 – 31, 2023

Did you know that people who walk on a regular basis have increased muscle strength, higher energy levels and improved health and well-being? Walking helps reduce the risk of chronic disease and health professionals recommend walking at least 10,000 steps a day to achieve those health benefits. There are steps conversion tables available for those who prefer to bike or for individuals with physical challenges.

So, get ready to move this Spring in the 10,000 Step Challenge for staff at U of T!
