Step Up to Live Well

 Step Up To Live Well at San Diego City College was created with the vision of a healthier, safer, and thriving campus community. With that said, we challenge YOU to join us in a movement towards wellness. Take part in our 30-Day Wellness Photo Challenge You must be wondering: “How will my participation in this challenge help improve my health and wellness?” or "What's in it for me?"

We are so glad you asked! 

The first step to improving health is awareness. We challenge the campus community to take note of the many aspects of their lives that contribute to their wellness.  Get excited, because it’s going to be one of those times in your life where you look back and say,

"That's when I reflected upon my health and overall well-being while inspiring others to do the same…AND it was FUN!

MOVE your bodies and CONNECT with your campus community! There is no maximum in how many photos you can submit. The most important thing is to have fun and be healthy! We encourage creativity. Take a selfie while you play with your nieces and nephews! Take photos of you walking your dog! Share your healthy morning breakfast ritual. Wellness is so much more than just going to the gym and eating a salad (but of course you can take photos of that too!!).


You have an opportunity to win prizes with each photo entry you tag with #stepupfor30days & #stepuptolivewell. Prizes? YES prizes! We will give away a Swag bag of prizes each week! FOLLOW US on Instagram and Like us on Facebook NOW to find out what kinds of prizes we are giving away!

You cannot post just ANY photo, of course! You must post a photo that represents something healthy you did that day. Not sure what might count? NO PROBLEM! We've created 30 prompts for each day of the challenge (see right panel of the poster above) in case you need an idea for what to post. Whether you use these prompts or not, we would love to see how you STEP UP TO LIVE WELL!
