Bears on the Stairs 2024

The Ursinus Wellness committee invites all Ursinus Faculty & Staff to participate in the Bears on the Stairs Challenge program.  Challenge runs for three weeks and starts on Sunday, April 7.

Week 1 - Sunday, April 7 to Saturday, April 13

How the Program Works: First step - SIGN UP for the challenge

Once the challenge starts on Sunday, April 7th:

  • Keep track of the number of stair steps you climb each day (not number of overall walking steps you take but stair steps).
    • Count steps going up AND down the stairs and be sure to include your stair steps off campus (e.g. at home, at the mall) and especially those steps on the weekends.
    • Use the Campus Stairwell Map to assist you in the calculation.
  • At the end of the day, add up your total number of stair steps.
  • At the end of each day/week, submit your steps online.
    • Enter your stair steps using the online tracking form
      • Steps must be entered by noon each Wednesday to be eligible for the raffle held that week.

The Stairs Challenge goal is to accumulate at least 1,800 stair steps in 3 weeks. The wellness committee has established weekly goals and incentives in order to encourage full participation throughout the three weeks. The full goal/incentive schedule is as follows:

Week 1 (April 7 to 13) needs 500+ total steps to be Eligible for the RAFFLE on April 17*

Week 2 (April 14 to 20) needs 1,100+ total steps to be Eligible for the RAFFLE on April 24*
