Move and Mentor Step Challenge 2018

 

1.    Register your MOR (Mentors on Request) organization as a Step Challenge Team here


2.    Go one step further:  Register to play an active role in MOVE and MENTOR

  •  Mentor CT HOSA students while you count your steps. Earn Steps for your team plus a Star* for mentoring (placed in the comment section).
  •  Get recognized for mentoring at the CPHA Awards Breakfast:

Mentoring Counts. (Here’s how you can actually count it.)  At the end of each week when you send in your steps, add stars * equaling the number of days you mentored while you walked. The MOR has a prize for the mentor with the most stars. 

E.g.  If you walk 30,000 steps and mentor while you walked 3 times, report:

 Week 1:  30,000 ***      = 3 mentored walks

Comments and pictures from CPHA 3030 Step Challenge 2017

 

"At a lecture in Canton by Jennifer Kertanis, I was stunned to learn that 20% of adults experience some sort of depression disorder, …and nearly 9% of young adults age 18-25 reported non-medical use of pain reliever. What better way to combat these serious issues than taking advantage of our wonderful walking trails.Walking is a great mood elevator." - Dorothy Paleologos - Principal Netmark Associates, Canton CT

  “This challenge motivated me to fulfill my goal of living healthier.  It jumps started my training for the Hartford half marathon.” -Brittany Trinka “Walking with students not in my patient care class gave me a chance to make new friends.”
