The Step It Up Challenge – Taking on UBC Okanagan

In 2017 the Step It Up Challenge Trophy was introduced as a part of the UBC Staff & Faculty Sports Day. A friendly competition between the UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan campus, which both host a version of Sports Day, the trophy is awarded to the campus that takes the most average steps per participant throughout the event.

In its first year, the Step It Up Challenge Trophy was won by UBC Okanagan, but there’s a big chance at redemption for staff and faculty at UBC Vancouver this year. With new locations and more activities, it will be even easier to log extra steps throughout the event. All it takes is to have one team member track and record your step during the event and we’ll make sure it’s added to the total tally for UBC Vancouver.
