Upcoming Events:

Weekly Step Challenge — Through March 22

If you are feeling limber, compete with colleagues across campus during our inaugural step challenge. Steps are entered each Friday during the campaign and reflect the weekly steps only (i.e., steps are not cumulative). Weekly winners will be able to choose a prize from a list of CMU swag and other items. Participants can only win once.

The Step Challenges has ended. Thanks to all of the participants for their donations and for logging over 1.6 million steps.

Congratulations to the Weekly Winners!
