StairDawgs Challenge

The UGA College of Education’s Center for Physical Activity and Health and the newly formed Exercise is Medicine on Campus student group are supporting a pilot project from April 1 to May 3 that will challenge UGA faculty and staff to increase their regular physical activity.

The StairDawgs Challenge requires participants to keep track of how many flights of stairs they take and to record this number every week. Participants unable to climb stairs instead should record every one minute of physical activity performed and report those minutes. All participants will compete to place on a weekly climber board with the top climbers getting a chance to win a FitBit.

To participate in the StairDawgs Challenge, register on the College of Education’s website ( by March 31.
