The Big Ten Challenge
Launch Physical Activity month by signing up for the “UNL Big Ten” Challenge. Utilize EveryMove while challenging your friends, colleagues, UNL departments, sorority houses, and more!
How it Works: this physical activity challenge is divided into three month-long challenges. Each challenge will ask you to “travel” to specific schools in the Big Ten, by logging your activity. Don’t worry if you aren’t a runner or cyclist, points can be awarded for yoga, household chores, mowing the lawn and more! Each point you achieve through EveryMove = 1 mile on the Big Ten Challenge. Each month, you will have a specific number of points (miles) as your goal.
Team Goals: Complete each phase of challenge by virtually visiting each Big Ten school designated in the challenge & receive a Team Achievement Certificate. Be the first team to reach a school on the route and earn that schools pennant to hang proudly in the office
Individual Goals: Complete each phase of challenge by virtually visiting each Big Ten school designated in the challenge & receive a University sticker for each school to place on your Brag Jar. Be the first individual to reach a school on the route and earn a small school pennant to hang proudly in your office.

About the Challenge
Nebraska organizations, businesses, colleges and schools are joining the Nebraska 150 Celebration and the Nebraska Sports Council in an effort to get Nebraskans to complete 150 miles or more of physical activity throughout the year.
Nebraskans can complete miles in a variety of different ways – bicycling, paddling, rolling, hiking, climbing, swimming – however you want to complete the challenge.
This challenge is more than just logging miles. It’s about connecting Nebraskans from all across the state, discovering new trails and finding events or opportunities to challenge yourself.
We encourage you to sign up today and to join other Nebraskans in completing the challenge!
