Elon Phoenix 9 Hole Walking Challenge

Each fall, the Faculty/Staff Health & Wellness Clinic holds a walking challenge. Teams of faculty and staff compete to see who can get in the most miles before the challenge concludes. Prizes are offered throughout the challenge for reaching walking milestones. This is always a fun activity for faculty and staff and is a great motivator to get out there and get walking!

This year’s theme is golf, which may influence team names, but you are welcome to stick with your usual team name – the choice is yours!
