Missed the launch?
You can still participate! Athletes, coaches, volunteers, families, community members, and staff members are invited to take part in this 6-week challenge. You can either skip the weeks you missed, or you can change the number of flights of stairs to climb each day to get caught up.
Don’t have stairs near your home?
That is okay! You can still participate. 1 flight of stairs = 38 steps. Just count your steps to get in your flights for the day.
Remember, this is your challenge, feel free to modify the program to match your fitness level.
