United We Step Fitness Challenge 2020
Do you need motivation to accomplish your fitness goals? Maybe to shake-off the winter blues? Looking to get up and start walking or jogging? Look no further, we are offering a 3 week virtual Fitness challenge!
This is a goal-oriented virtual challenge, where you choose your distance! There will be times to connect as a group to help motivate each other in a positive environment! There will also be a weekly challenge activities during the three weeks, that will promote a healthy life style both physically and mentally.
We will be using an App called STRAVA for this virtual fitness challenge. There will be directions on how to download this app to your phone below. Every time you go out for your run or walk it will record your distance and report it back to the group. There will be a leader board for time of activity, distance and amount of activities recorded. There is also a group discussion board that you can post to the group to see. This is where the weekly challenge will be posted each Monday!
This is a FREE program, and every participant will receive a Buxton Recreation Water Bottle that will be delivered right to their home! Feel free to grab the entire family for this challenge! Please make sure to register every participant in your household in one account. We want to make sure that we know where to send the water bottles. When you register, you may give a donation to the Buxton Recreation Scholarship Fund. You mail your donation to: Buxton Recreation, 185 Portland Road, Buxton, ME, 04093
