February Heart Month Step Challenge

Hello College of Pharmacy!

February is “American Heart Month.” APhA-ASP Operation Heart wants to invite you to participate in our annual Step Challenge! This is a friendly competition among the classes and faculty/staff. Yes, you heard correctly, this competition is for everyone involved in the College and will help us to increase our physical activity and awareness of heart disease! The Class (including Faculty) with the most steps during the month of February will receive a prize at the end of the month!

I have included a link to a google spreadsheet that anyone within the College of Pharmacy can edit. This competition will run through the whole month of February. Simply log your daily steps as frequently as you can, on a day-by-day basis or at the end of each week. Do your best not to guess how many steps you took that day and please be honest. It is easiest if you use a step tracker such as a pedometer, the “Health” App on iPhone, Fitbit, Apple Watch, etc. There are plenty of apps that will work for this. Do some online research and find one that you want to use!

Within the link, there are 5 tabs that correspond to the P1, P2, P3, P4, and Faculty “classes.” Please use your correct tab. This will be a lot of fun, and it will be exciting to see who is engaging in the highest amount of physical activity during American Heart Month!
