HKU Virtual Walking Challenge

Together we have completed an exciting journey, taking on the ultimate challenge inspired by the Olympic Games 2024, which will take place in Paris. This year, we set an ambitious goal of collectively achieving 330 million steps, representing the 33rd Olympiad and symbolizing the spirit of athleticism, determination, and perseverance.

The HKU Virtual Walking Challenge encouraged the HKU community (students, staff, retirees, and alumni) to come together with the common goal of virtually walking together. By embarking on this virtual journey to Paris, the challenge aimed to promote fitness and a healthy body and mind, as well as to create a sense of community on campus and around the world through healthy competition.

Again, we partnered with the Computer Science department to further develop our HKU Walking Challenge App, which was created exclusively for this challenge. The walking app was user-friendly and helped to keep track of your daily steps, showed your own and your team's performance, as well as the rankings of the HKU Walking Challenge.
