DID YOU KNOW?
– Stair climbing requires 8-9 times more energy expenditure than sitting.
– It counts as ‘vigorous’ physical activity and burns more calories per minute than jogging.
– You burn roughly 1.5 calories for every 10 steps.
The UBC Pick Your Peak Stair Challenge is an annual, fun, and inclusive way to encourage faculty and staff to move throughout the day.
This year’s Dept of Pediatrics team is staying healthy and supporting eachother virtually for this 4 week challenge.
