Join the College Sport Auckland Keeping Active Step Challenge – how many steps can you do for your school in a week?

This is our second participation-based competition to help students and staff keep active, stay connected, and engage in some friendly competition between schools during Alert Level 4. Any number of steps will help contribute to your school’s total.

Record and submit your steps between Monday 6 September – Friday 10 September, 9.00am – 6.00pm each day to contribute to your school’s total step count. Only one entry per day will be counted towards your school’s total step count, so please remember to submit your steps the same day you recorded it. Each entry must include proof you have completed the steps submitted by sending in a screenshot/photo from a fitness watch (ie Fitbit, Apple Watch) or other fitness app (ie iPhone Health, Samsung Health, Google Fit, Pedometer step counter). Please be sensible and know your limits!

Points will be based on school roll numbers i.e. average steps per student at your school. Steps will be included as they’ve been entered.

We’ll update the school leader boards regularly and announce the final placings on Tuesday 14 September.

So get moving, contact your school friends to get them involved, submit your entries via the link below and tag us on Instagram @collegesportauckland #CSAkeepingactive
