Move UBC Movement Break Challenge | Feb 1 – 28

Move UBC is back and better than ever before! New this year, we will be hosting a challenge called the Move UBC Movement Break Challenge! This new challenge is a fun and inclusive way to bring movement into your own life and also to those around you! Participation in the challenge is simple and you’ll have the chance to win great prizes! 


How it Works:

Starting February 1st, take a movement break yourself or initiate a movement break for your class, meeting, group, or family and enter in the draw to win a prize! For each movement break, make sure to count the number of people (including yourself) that are impacted as this is required in your submission. The more people you impact, the greater chances you will have at winning a prize. 

  • Step away from your desk to go for a walk = 1 entry.
  • Take a walking meeting instead of Zoom with one other person = 2 entries.
  • Implement a movement break in a lecture of 150 students = 150 entries.

Enter entries daily, weekly or at the end of the month. Whatever is easiest for you! To help you with keeping track, we have created this fillable Movement Tracker. All entries must be submitted by February 28th 11:59pm PST. See button below to submit your entries!

When: February 1st to 28th, 2022

Who: UBC staff and faculty members!

Looking for movement break ideas or videos that you can share with your class or do in your own time? We have lots for you to choose from! To find movement breaks, we recommend you check out the following:

Take out the work of planning a movement break and request the Move U Crew to facilitate a movement break during your lecture, seminar, meeting, or event. The Move U Crew will guide attendees through a short 5-10 minute routine of stretches and light exercises. Available both in-person and online.
