Walk Yah! Yah!

St.Olaf Faculty and Staff,

We hope your fall is off to a great start!  The Walk Yah Yah Board would like to support the Intramural Individual Fitness Challenge which begins on Oct 3 and runs through Dec 11th.  This program allows you to gain points for many different type of activities, including walking.  Each week you report your activities online, obtain points and if you achieve enough points per week, you are entered into a drawing for a prize at the end of the 4th week.  You can continue to improve and then achieve entry into another prize drawing at the end of the 8th week. You may log your workout information daily or at the end of the week. All information is listed on the Intramural web site  www.stolaf.edu/recreation/intramurals You may register online and the deadline is Oct 3.

Below are a list of instructions on how to register and if you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Amy Prok in the IM office.
