20.20 Summer Challenge

GET ACTIVE...CONNECT WITH MEMBERS OF THE TC COMMUNITY...SUPPORT TC STUDENTS!


13,102 miles, 312 participants, $7,379 money raised. Traveled from Los Angeles to Tokyo

The TC Summer Challenge is a community-wide campaign to motivate all current & incoming students, alumni, faculty and staff to “Come Together” and get moving in honor of the Teachers College Class of 2020. Through this challenge, we hope to attract more than 275 movers who will collectively circle the globe — 25,000 miles!— by committing to move at least 1 mile per day, every day, during the summer, and raise $10,000 to support TC’s students. Don’t think you can move a mile? No problem — we still need you on our team — whatever you are able to do is welcome.

HOW TO TURN YOUR MOVEMENT INTO MILES

Once registered for the challenge:

  1. Track your steps/miles daily using a fitness tracker ( i.e Apple Health, Fitbit, Strava, GoogleFit etc.) on your phone or device.
  2. Every Saturday afternoon participants will receive a Google Form to fill out with your week’s movement. Please fill out the form before 11:59 pm on Sunday. 
  3. Progress will be updated every Monday by noon.

What movement counts? Just about anything you can think of can be turned into miles that will get us to the goal of 25,000 miles. So, take a yoga class, go for a walk, or a run, or go swimming or ride your bike!
