Liberty Parks & Rec is launching a 7-day community wide steps challenge May 13-19! Space is limited to the first 50 participants so join us and register today! This challenge will be tracked using a virtual platform called Challenge Runner, which will allow you to participate from anywhere! As part of the challenge you will receive daily emails designed to help educate, inspire and keep you on track throughout the week. For ease of participation it is recommended that you have a fitness tracker of some sort (i.e. FitBit, Apple Watch, MyFitnesspal etc.) however, having a tracker is not mandatory to participate.
Once the Steps Challenge has ended, you will be asked to complete a Program Post-Survey for a chance to win one of three Academy Sports and Outdoors gift cards.
