Stay Fit philly Challenge

Thank you for your participation in the Stay Fit Philly Challenge!

The t-shirts (or hoodies if you selected it) and medals were all mailed out in late December and are in the postal pipeline for delivery.

Please be patient, as the holiday package season has had a more substantial impact upon delivery dates than expected.

If you still have not received it by mid-January, please contact [email protected].

We hope you enjoyed the challenge!

The Stay Fit Philly Challenge is a month-long challenge designed to encourage people to stay active during the month of November!

Unlike other challenges, the Stay Fit Challenge is based on 30 days of activity instead of miles achieved!

To keep you motivated, we will provide daily challenge videos—these videos will include a variety of activities that build every day keeping you active through the month of November! Pay attention to each challenge because there will be some hidden perks you won’t want to miss! You are encouraged to stay active by doing at least 15-30 minutes of other activities including running, walking, biking, swimming, yoga, gardening, or walking the dog.

A portion of your registration fee is being donated to the AACR and will help propel the next wave of discoveries to benefit cancer patients and their families everywhere.


How Does it Work?

The Stay Fit Challenge is a virtual program encouraging participants to complete 30 consecutive days of activities (or as many as you can) between November 1st and 30th, 2020. However, don’t let the days hold you back, this is all about being active for as many days as possible!

We will also have social media milestone badges based on how many days you are active. The perfect way to tout your activity!
