UT System Physical Activity Challenge


COMING SOON!  Keep UT System Active: Spring 2018 Challenge

Keep UT System Active will allow each participant to draw on the excitement of learning about UT System Institutions by virtually visiting landmarks at each campus. Participants will virtually travel along the State of Texas as you practice healthy habits — with amazing images and vivid descriptions of UT Institution landmarks that make you feel as if you’re right there.

You’ll be teaming up with colleagues to compete against other UT System institutions for the coveted traveling trophy. As a bonus, you will virtually visit each UT Institutions without having to board a plane or get in a car! While doing so, you will keep up your healthy habits throughout the four-week challenge to earn your Living Well rewards: a cooling towel and a running belt.
