The 2019 Go Move Challenge, a long-standing annual event among Jesuit institutions, begins on Friday, February 1. Throughout the month, faculty and staff at participating institutions record their minutes of movement to determine which Jesuit institution is the most active. This is a great opportunity to increase your activity levels throughout the month of February.

Awards go to the university that tracks the most minutes, as well as the university that averages the highest number of minutes per participant. Several important details about the challenge are listed below:
