2020 Special Summer Edition: UMB Faculty and Staff Step Competition 

Let's walk through COVID-19 together — UMB's Ultimate Mileage Battle is partnering with the Community Engagement Center (CEC) to give back to the community. During the pandemic, our nearby communities are struggling economically with strained resources and need our support. Let’s support the CEC by helping to raise money for James McHenry Elementary/Middle School eighth-graders. *The funds are needed to help prepare students to be successful for the upcoming school year. Learn how to give (donations are voluntary for this step challenge). 

Join your school or work area or create a team of your own to compete against the others for the Step Champion Title! Winners will also have the chance to be featured on the Launch Your Life website and newsletter.

The school or area that has the highest daily step average earned between July 20 and Aug. 14 will be the winner. Other recognitions will be awarded at the end of the challenge. Different types of physical activity will count toward your steps, and you will be provided a conversion chart.
