There’s Still Time to Travel To the Moon!
The journey of a thousand (or 250,000 to be exact) miles begins with a single step. Most people see exercise as all or nothing, but truthfully all it takes is a few minutes each day to begin a habit. Soon, you will find that the two-minute daily walk you started weeks ago is now 20 minutes or more.
This fall, Well Aware is helping to motivate MCPS staff to take that small step with the 10-week physical activity challenge: To the Moon. We are working together to travel the distance to the moon. The journey from Earth to the Moon is about 250,000 miles. Together, we will cover the distance by compiling our miles (or hours of activity).
Participants are already logging their activity throughout the challenge, and tracking progress using the online Well Aware Fitness Log. Based on participation, employees will be eligible to win prizes for themselves, their team, and their school or office.
Gather your team! To the Moon started on Monday, Oct. 1, but there is still plenty of time to go. The challenge ends Sunday, Dec. 9. Join your coworkers as a team or train as an individual. See challenge details including important dates.
