SusanaFeb 16, 2021

Welcome to February Stridekickers! 👋 Thanks for stopping by for this month's community update. It may be a bit chillier outside at the moment, but we have a lot of challenges that will make getting your steps in more fun! We hope you'll join us for a community challenge or 2 this February. We'll also be sharing highlights from our January challenges and shouting-out 2 users who have gone above and beyond in our recent community challenges.

February Community Challenges

Here's a quick rundown of our community challenges starting this February. To join any of the challenges listed below, please create or log into your existing Stridekick account and then follow the steps in this help article.

February Target! 🎯 | Feb. 1 - 28

Individual Goal: Reach 155,000 steps in 28 days

Join us for the continuation of our January Target challenge! ❄️ Our goal is to step approximately ~5.5k/day this month since it's a bit shorter. We can do it! Each participant will be working toward the target goal of 155,000 steps by the end of the month. Good luck, and happy stepping! 👟

28 Days of Self-Care | Feb. 1 - 28

Individual Goal: Complete a daily self-care task each day

Show yourself some love this February with 28 days of self-care! From a quiet 5-minutes to yourself each morning to showing yourself compassion after a difficult day, self-care can mean something different for everyone and can vary from day-to-day. There's no right or wrong way to practice self-care, as long as you remember to check in with yourself each day and remind yourself that your health and well-being is a priority.
