walk across campus


 

Background

Campus Recreation sponsored Walk Across Campus from 2006 to 2012. In 2012, the event was expanded and became a major component of the HEALTHY YOU program. Walk Across Campus was fully-subscribed as a two-month walking/activity campaign featuring friendly team competitions. Each team was comprised of about 10-20 participants, and teams were organized by department or included people from multiple departments.  Since 2012, BC has subsidized Fitbits to benefits-eligible participants in order to encourage the digital tracking of steps/miles. Results, details and photos of past Walk Across Campus challenges can be found below.
