Go Move Challenge Details:

The challenge runs from February 1 – February 28, so make sure to get registered so you can begin tracking your minutes right away. Stay tuned to the Dome for fitness suggestions throughout the month of February to help you stay motivated!

Awards go to the university that tracks the most minutes, the university that averages the highest number of minutes per participant, and the university with the highest average number of minutes per region.
