MBU Way of Life “Faces of 50″ program

Part of being healthy is moving and staying active.  As Missouri Baptist University’s celebrates its 50th anniversary, employees are encouraged to find their own “50″ in miles. You get to choose how you get there and how many times over you reach the 50 goal this semester- walk, jog, bike, swim, hike, or even canoe! Log your miles on the “Walk/Run” or “Bike” mileage chart(s) outside of the Fitness Center and we will celebrate each employee as they reach their 50, 100, 150, 200+ miles throughout the semester.  MBU is proud of the faces that make up our healthy community!

There is no registration or sign-up required.  Simply start logging today.  Regional Learning Center employees can send their mileage via email to fitness@mobap.edu.

Head over to the Running Club page (right sidebar) to find out how you can join other employees to reach your goal.
