You may print your UCCS Walktober Challenge Log Card from this page(http://www.uccs.edu/Documents/shc/Tally%20Card%20Final.pdf), or pick up a card at the Student Health Center, UCCS Rec Center, or Information Desk at the University Center. We encourage you to stay active by walking to class or work, walking across campus rather than taking the bus, walking during lunch breaks or with friends, exercising in the UCCS Rec Center, exercising outside, hiking, etc. Get creative!

Gold level- achieving a monthly total of 1500 or more minutes (~45 minutes a day)

How to Participate:
- Record minutes spent walking. All minutes are logged by the individual and are self-reported. For example: If you walk 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes at night, at the end of the day you would put “30 minutes” into the slot for that day. *If you do a different workout that involves foot movement (IE dance) it is up to your discretion whether or not to use the minutes on your card. Please do not log minutes for cycling, swimming, or weight lifting.
- At the end of each 10 day cycle, add minutes to help keep track of your progress toward your goal and write the total in the “weekly total” slots.
- At the end of the month, add all of your minutes to find out whether you reached your goal for the month. If you reached your goal- congrats! If not- fitness is a lifetime journey, keep at it! Whether or not you reached your goal, you can still turn in your card to win prizes.
- All participants must turn in their completed cards by Friday, November 6th at noon to the Student Health Center front desk (open Monday-Friday, 8-5). The drawing for prizes will happen Friday, November 6th at 1pm and the winner will be notified via phone that day.
All participants that complete at least 500 minutes during the Month of October will be eligible to be entered for a prize depending on the level of minutes they achieved.
Participants may scan completed cards to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 719-255-4446.
