Brock’s Health Management is challenging staff and faculty to lace up their running shoes and jump on a spin bike to pedal and run the distance to the North Pole this month
Starting Wednesday, Dec. 1, and running until Dec. 21, employees are asked to track their distances in kilometres running, walking or cycling. The goal is for everyone involved to collectively move 10,442 kilometres, the distance from Brock to the North Pole and back again.
So far, more than 60 employees have signed up to take part using the Focus on Learning form found on the Race to the North Pole website. After signing up, staff will be sent a simple tracking sheet that can be used to record daily distances.
Everyone who returns the sheet at the end of the challenge will be entered to win a prize of a campus store gift card. As with any exercise, however, Health Management recommends consulting a physician before starting a new program.
