Edina, Minn., April 4, 2019 – Take on the Step To It Challenge, a free four-week physical activity challenge and friendly competition among local communities.
This is Edina’s first year competing in the challenge in which residents, schools, neighbors, families and friends sign up, record their activities and compete for prizes, including tickets to Minnesota Twins games, T-shirts and more.
Participants don’t need to start a new activity. Many things people already do count as steps, from pickleball and tai chi to gardening or washing a car by hand. Or start a new activity or two to earn more points.
Participants use a handy chart to convert their activities into points and track them. The winning communities, schools and individuals receive awards. Other participating cities this year include Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Hopkins, Richfield and St. Louis Park.
Anyone who lives or works in Edina is encouraged to join the Edina team. People of all ages and abilities are welcome.
“No matter who you are, we want you to join us,” said Recreation Supervisor Nicole Gorman. “It’s a quick and easy way to help you become a healthier and happier person.”
Sign up now at StepToIT.org or learn more at EdinaMN.gov/StepToIt. The Step To It Challenge begins May 1.
