Chicago Treadmill Challenge
Presented by 

 

THE TREADMILL CHALLENGE HAS BEEN MOVED TO A VIRTUAL EVENT.
SEE BELOW FOR AN UPDATE ON THE EVENT (AS OF 3.13.2020):
 

Dear Treadmill Challenge Participants,

Due to increased concerns, we have decided to cancel today’s Treadmill Challenge at the Willis Tower. As we know people were certainly excited, and teams still want to participate, we will be extending our virtual Treadmill Challenge through next Friday, March 20th. We would love for you to join us and continue to support our members and our mission in this virtual community.

Here’s how you can join: 
Step 1: Get out there and run your 15 min, 30 min or 60 min time slot by the end of the day on Friday!
Step 2: Join the Chicago Treadmill Challenge event page on Facebook
Step 3: Post a photo of you and your time from either your fitness tracker (watch or phone) or the treadmill, and post in the ‘Discussions’ section on the event page (*Not on Facebook? Send an email to events@backonmyfeet.org, and we will post for you with your permission!*). Be sure to tag your company or team so we can tally the miles!

We’ll post updates of the Leaderboard and announce winners at the close of the competition.

Thank you for your support of Back on My Feet and for your flexibility.  Wherever you run, your miles and your support help individuals experiencing homelessness right here in Chicago. You, your teams and your companies are having a tremendous impact, and we appreciate it. We hope you will join us online through next Friday, March 20th, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Sincerely,
The Back on My Feet Chicago Team
