Welcome to Week 7!
Shape Up San Francisco challenges you, your family, neighbors, and colleagues to get moving with the annual Shape Up SF Walking Challenge . Get a team together and record your physical activity over the course of 10 weeks. The goal is for the team's collective total to add up to 1,016 miles, the equivalent of the California coastline. After you complete the 1,016 miles along the coast of California, your team can choose whether or not to continue with a new challenge across the country and if you are brave enough, around the world!
To participate, simply start or join a team, log your miles, and track your weekly goal as you improve your health. Walking is easy, fun, and free, but we also want to encourage you to use any kind of physical activity you prefer for this challenge. If your exercise can't be calculated as miles, just use the formula that 20 minutes of vigorous activity (i.e. aerobics, dancing, playing basketball) is equivalent to a mile.
Make sure to check back to our website regularly for updates on NEWS AND EVENTS and be sure to utilize all the great, local RESOURCES AND TOOLS available. If you have any questions, please feel free to CONTACT US for more details.
The Shape Up Walking Challenge is an activity that has been adapted from the "Walk Your State" SPARK curriculum.
