Muscles for Myeloma Fitness Challenge, April - May 2020
Join the NEW Muscles for Myeloma Fitness Challenge! Challenge starts this Friday, April 10 and runs through Friday, May 29 (the day before our Virtual Race). All patients and caregivers are welcome to join before or anytime throughout the challenge.
WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE & HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
This challenge will focus on STEPS and staying active through COVID-19. We use an app called MoveSpring which allows you to record your steps either through a device (FitBit, Apple Watch, etc.) or you can manually enter it into the system. Our team (and the myeloma community chat) will encourage you every step of the way with workout videos from our team, walking/running fitness plans, and an overall focus to encourage you to stay healthy (and sane) during such a stress-induced time.
Personal Goal: Walk/Run 6,000 Step Per Day
Team Goal: Reach 14,000 Miles by Friday, May 29
Patients and Caregivers are eligible for prizes. Since we are all on different fitness levels, this challenge will have no leaderboard. The focus will be on each individual meeting a simple step/goal. Every participant will be entered into a raffle drawing and at the end of the challenge we will draw out 10 participants to each win a $100 Amazon Gift Card.
If you sign up for this challenge & also register for the upcoming Muscles for Myeloma Virtual Race (button below), you will be entered into a drawing for an Apple Watch or Fitbit (or if you prefer, a $200 Visa Gift Card).
