This is a 4-week physical activity challenge open to all SFU staff and faculty in the lead up to Wellness Day on November 16, 2021. The challenge is for people of ALL fitness levels and incorporates all types of activity. 


The challenge will run from October 15 to November 12, 2021.


Participants will keep track of their daily active minutes and challenge themselves to do even better! You can use any method to track your minutes - including your phone, fitness watches, apps, and more. 


The Stay Active Challenge is a great way to stay active and encourage one another! There are also prizes available: each person who participates in the challenge will be entered into a draw for one of three GooglePlay book credits. The draw will happen on November 16 during Wellness Day, so we hope you'll join us!

We travelled around Canada! 

Congratulations to our 24 teams for completing the 2021 Stay Active Challenge! Over the course of four weeks, we've exercised a combined 227,404 minutes — that amounts to 15,646 km of combined walking and swimming around Canada!

The top three teams that had the most combined minutes over the 4-week period were:

  1. The Talent Pool (Human Resources) - 21,085 min
  2. Movers & Shakers (Beedie MarComms) - 19,413 min
  3. EduAction Begins Here! (Faculty of Education - Surrey) - 18,110 min

Thanks to all those who participated, and we hope that you'll continue to stay active!
