FitBit Challenge7With the holiday season fast approaching – and with it, all of those holiday meals – you may already be penciling “fitness” in atop your list of New Year’s Resolutions.

If that’s the case, we’re here to help! Alberta Venture is teaming up with the University of Alberta’s UWALK program for a bit of a friendly competition to kick off 2015, and you can take part.

For the month of January we’ll track the activity of publisher Ruth Kelly, editor Mike Ganley, director of sales Allyson Kurian, assistant art director Colton Ponto and production manager Betty Smith, who will all be wearing Fitbits.

Can you keep up? Join our UWalk Community today and find out! As an added incentive, anyone who joins is entitled to a free, one-year subscription to the magazine, and anyone who scores higher than editor Mike will get a complimentary pass to the Fast Growth 50 conference on February 24 in Calgary. Better fitness and free stuff – what could be better!





Check back every Friday to see your progress (and how you stack up) and trade fitness tips, stories or ideas with us on Twitter using the hashtag #AVGetsFit.
