Global Challenge

In 2017 UNSW won the Global Challenge ‘Most Active University in Australia’ title for the second year in a row. Are you ready to help us make it a hat trick?! 

The Global Challenge is back in 2018 and this year it’s better than ever. There are some exciting updates including the all-new ‘Max Buzz’ wrist-band device and built-in activity conversions that mean all your aerobics, dancing, yoga, rowing and other activities contribute towards your daily step-count. Check out the attached flyer for more info on what’s new.

Registrations are now open and can be made here.

The price is $77 (+GST) per person, or $539 (+GST) per team of 7 people.

Each registration includes 100 days of physical, nutritional, mental and social health and wellbeing, plus a Max Buzz wrist-band fitness tracker which tracks active minutes, calories, distance and sleep!

If you would like to register for the Global Challenge, please gather your team of 7 and check with your Area Manager that funding is available. Below is the list of Area Managers for 2018. If your Area does not yet have an Area Manager listed but you have a team assembled and ready to register, please contact me.
