Walk for Joy

February 5 - April 7


Walk for Joy (formerly Walkabout) is a 9 week walking, rolling and physical activity challenge designed to get people moving and reduce sedentary time. This challenge is open to all UBC students, staff, faculty, and community members. A large emphasis is placed on being social while completing physical activity, so find a friend to get moving with! Participants can join with a 5 member team or participate individually, and will try to accumulate as many steps during each week. Bonus “social steps” are given for any physical activities done with another person. A step leaderboard will be updated weekly, so you can track your progress and keep an eye on how your team is doing! At the end of the challenge, awards and prizes will be presented to the team with the most steps walked, best team name and best team photo. The top team will have their team name engraved on a plaque!

This year, Rainbow Bridge will be our charitable partner. In lieu of registration fees, participants are encouraged to make a donation to the organization.

Registration is now open until January 29 at 11:59PM!
