Enroll in LVS 341 on NYUiLearn

Calling all NYU faculty and employees in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai – NYU LiveSmart is proud to announce the Sixth Annual Global Walking Challenge from November 13 through December 10, 2016! Join global NYU colleagues in our fun, healthy, four-week walking program to increase your physical activity*, promote teamwork, and encourage a friendly competitive spirit in the workplace.

Registered participants receive a free pedometer to measure daily steps (or are welcome to use a personal mobile device or band). Team members then record individual steps (required) on our shared Google Drive document, with tracking visible by team members in New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi. The campus team that has walked the most steps per average will be named winner of the virtual torch trophy, passed annually to the winning team. Additionally, co-champs on each team for participants with the total most logged steps will be recognized. Finally, the celebratory plaque of annual winners will be updated and on display at the NYU Human Resources office in New York:

  • 2016 – ?
  • 2015 – Abu Dhabi team
  • 2014 – Abu Dhabi team
  • 2013 – Abu Dhabi team
  • 2012 – Abu Dhabi team
  • 2011 – New York team

    Register for LVS 341 on NYUiLearn by November 7 for the team in New York, Shanghai, or Abu Dhabi. You need not be based at the campus in order to be a contributing member of that team. Good luck!

* The World Health Organization, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and American Heart Foundation recommend a minimum 10,000 steps per day to improve health and reduce risks of chronic disease. What's your daily step count?
