Fairfield University faculty and staff are invited to join AJCU schools across the country in the Go Move Challenge

Hopefully the Go Move Challenge can be an incentive to take a small portion of the day and be active.

— John Dinihanian, program coordinator of Sports Clubs and Intramural program and organizer of the Go Move Challenge

Beginning February 1, Fairfield faculty and staff will make every minute – and movement - count in the Go Move Challenge, a competition between 23 other Jesuit Universities across the country. The common goal: maintain a healthy lifestyle and to stay dedicated to the Jesuit values of mind, body, and spirit.

Participants can register and log their workouts at GoMoveChallenge.org. All types of intentional exercises are encouraged from walking your dog to playing basketball with friends to riding your bike. With the weather being unpredictable, there are also plenty of inside activities to do such as jumping jacks, sit-ups, or push-ups.

John Dinihanian, program coordinator of Sports Clubs and Intramural program, and organizer of the Go Move Challenge, encourages participants to get creative in their exercises. He says: “As long as it is intentional exercise it counts. Anything from walking to the dog to playing basketball with some friends can count towards the challenge.”

Dinihanian says he’s excited to see how the challenge can help motivate people and to see the community come together for the competition. “Everyone has a lot going on, but hopefully the Go Move Challenge can be an incentive to take a small portion of the day and be active.”

Started in 2013 by Santa Clara University, the Go Move Challenge aims to maintain healthy lifestyles and incentivize faculty and staff to exercise from Jesuit Universities. Culminating on February 28th the university with the highest total number of minutes will be named winner of the challenge.
