SNC Step It Up

St. Norbert College students, faculty and staff are invited and encouraged to join our dynamic walking program! 
Our walk begins:  Monday, Oct. 1st

In a collaborative effort with Health Services, this program provides an opportunity for the SNC walking participants to connect with people in the community through non-profit organizations.  Together, in a gesture of generosity and caring, SNC and the walking participants are helping the less fortunate in the area.

We will be walking for non-profit 501(c)3 organizations that accept gift cards to help with their mission.

This walking program involves choosing a non-profit organization from the list shown on the registration page. Your individual team of 2 to 5 people will be part of a larger group that has selected the same non-profit organization.

Walking steps will be tallied for each organization’s supporting team.

At the end of five weeks each of the non-profit organizations will receive a gift card. The monetary value of the card will be pre-determined and distributed by the highest to lowest step counts achieved.

  • Register online:  The Registration page  gives further details about the non-profit organizations.
  • Teams:  2 to 5 walkers, one person designated as the team captain
  • Team name:  This is the non-profit organization your team is walking for.
  • Keep track of your steps: Use a pedometer, cellphone app or any other device that will record your daily steps
  • Conversion chart:  Use this to convert your daily activites into steps (directions can be found on the chart)
  • Record your steps:  Directions will be emailed to registered participants
  • How far have we walked?  This page shows all the teams and everyone's progress
  • Fees? No fees, it's totally free!
  • Recognizing the non-profit organizations - Our team walk concludes on Nov. 4th - 5 weeks of accomplishing our goal for a healthier lifestyle and helping our community!

Our Goal
Our goal is to have everyone achieve either:
10,000 steps a day
30 to 60 minutes of exercise daily, converted into a step count 

And if your daily step count goes beyond this, that will be fantastic!
