Edina, Minn., March 31, 2020 – Turn those household chores and spring activities into prizes by taking part in the free Step To It Challenge.
Sign-ups begin April 1 for the four-week activity challenge that runs in May. Participants don’t need to run or walk to record “steps.” Many everyday activities, including gardening or washing a car by hand, earn points.
People can win their age bracket and also help Edina beat out other local communities in the competition. Last year, Edina’s first in the Step To It Challenge, more than 187 residents and people who work in Edina took part, logging more than 28 million steps. Some took home prizes for winning their division or just for participating. Prizes included Minnesota Twins tickets, fitness trackers and T-shirts.
When you’re practicing social distancing, is a perfect time to get a head start on how to record activities come competition time. Take those chores, solo walks, bike rides and other activities, then see the conversion chart at EdinaMN.gov/StepToIt to track your “steps.”
“Let’s make it count toward a community goal!” said Edina Recreational Supervisor Nicole Gorman.
All ages and abilities are welcome to join in. Once the challenge begins May 1, participants can start recording steps online or report by phone.
