Did you celebrate National Recreation Day yesterday?
Here’s a look at what several rec departments did to celebrate around the nation this year:
This year, National Recreation Day at CSUMB is virtual. Events happened every day of the week on top of a seven-day Strava Challenge . Students were challenged to get at least of 80 minutes of walking, hiking, running, swimming or rolling. Once completed, they could enter into a drawing to win a pair of AirPod Pros.
Students were invited to a 36-hour Wellness Challenge. They were tasked to complete wellness missions that included text, picture and video sharing. The goal was to accomplish as many missions as one could — and students received bonuses for creativity.
Campus Recreation used the app GooseChase to host the “Hunt for Wellness” game. Winners received Apple AirPods.
On February 22, students were encouraged to send pictures and statements via the campus rec department’s Instagram or email. The pictures and statements received were posted on social media to celebrate National Recreation Day.
On top of the below list of activities, UAB also encouraged students to use #recday to share how they were celebrating activity, participation, fitness, sportsmanship and determination. Plus, if they came early they could receive a T-shirt for participating.
The school called its students to come celebrate with a list of activities available. Group fitness classes were held throughout the day. Plus, several intramural sports were offered:
