The friendly fitness competition determines which Jesuit institution is the most active during the month of February. Twenty campuses are participating this year, and faculty and staff are busy moving and tracking minutes of movement in real time by on the website created specifically for the challenge, gomovechallenge.org.

All participants are encouraged to post photos and comments on the Go Move Challenge Facebook Group and Instagram pages. You’ll see the activities runs the gamut, from fitness classes and fun runs to yoga and dance. Other activities include department challenges, group walks, desk exercise sessions and shoveling snow! 

After the first week, more than 3,300 participants have accumulated in excess of 500,000 minutes of activity – and it’s growing by the minute.

The Go Move Challenge premiered in 2013 with just two institutions, Santa Clara University and University San Francisco.  With a majority of Jesuit institutions participating, it’s clear that our network has a shared commitment to promoting wellness and movement.

Participating in the faculty and staff challenge are University of San Francisco, Creighton University, John Carroll University,  Le Moyne College, Loyola University Chicago, Marquette University, Saint Peter’s University, Regis University, Santa Clara University, Saint Joseph’s University, Saint Louis University, College of the Holy Cross, Xavier University, Spring Hill College, Fairfield University, Rockhurst University, Loyola University Maryland, Georgetown University, Gonzaga University and the University of Scranton.

Participating in the student challenge are University of San Francisco, Saint Peter’s University, Fairfield University, Santa Clara University, Creighton University, Saint Louis University and the University of Scranton.

Keep moving and tracking. Three more weeks to go!
