BJP's hit Virtual Walkathon is back! We hope to see you walking August 28th and 29th.
10,000 Steps for BJP is a weekend of summer fun and activity in support of BJP. Participants complete their steps (and more) at their own pace, from wherever they are. During and after their walk, we encourage participants to take photos and videos and photos during their walk and post them to social media, tagging @BrooklynJesuit and using the hashtag #BJP10000. You can also send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to rock any of your finest BJP swag (or anything forest green)!
We have 3 goals for this event, with prizes for our students attached to each:
- 250 participants. If we attain this goal, we’ll earn one (1) dress down day.
- $5,000 for our school. If we attain this goal, we’ll earn one (1) additional day of winter break this year (yes, you read that right).
- NEW GOAL: 1,000,000 steps, we’ll earn a school-wide pizza party and dress down day.
Plan Your Walk!
Register to walk today by completing this form! You can either map out your route ahead of time (10,000 Steps is about 5 miles), or you can track your steps on your phone with different apps (the Health app comes with every iPhone, and there are many free apps in the Android app store as well). If you want to go somewhere scenic for your walk, that's great! If you want to jog it or make it part of your run, that's great too! We're just excited to see you out there.
