10K-A-Day is live for registration and logging activity. 10K-A-Day is a physical activity campaign and tracking tool that challenges you to accumulate 10,000 steps each day, while virtually traversing a variety of global trails. As with Walktober and Spring Into Motion, you’ll have access to many well-being resources, social support features, and a database of healthy recipes. 10K-A-Day will be ongoing for the next year, allowing you to record your activity 24/7 and keep up with colleagues between UT System and Institution challenges.
