2005 Fitness Challenge, info available today & tomorrow
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged and invited to participate in the 2005 Arkansas Fitness Challenge pitting the employees of St. Bernards Medical Center against ASU.

The 2005 Fitness Challenge will officially kick off on Monday, Feb. 28, at the fountain on the west side of the new Student Union. Several "walking experiences" will be held three times a week for 10 weeks. By covering scenic routes around campus, each one will count as one segment of an across-the-state roadmap.
