100 Miles in 100 Days

Human Resources and Institutional Advancement invite the Ferrum College Family to participate in a Centennial Celebration of Wellness. Join us for health, fun and prizes!


Thursday, February 6, 2014 – Friday, May 16, 2014

The Challenge begins at 12 noon on Thursday, February 6, 2014, at Hart International Plaza where the campus community is invited to gather with President Jennifer Braaten to inaugurate the 100 Miles in 100 Days Walk. You’re also invited to wear your walking shoes and step off the first mile that very day!

Everyone is urged to participate. By doing so, you are sharing in our Centennial Celebration and ensuring your own good health and wellness as Ferrum College moves into its next 100 years.

You may accumulate your miles walking with colleagues or enjoying solitary strolls. Walking options are many, from the treadmills at the campus YMCA or a campus walk in nice weather to walking at home or at another location.

On the 100th day, Friday, May 16 2014, participants will regroup at 12 noon at Hart International Plaza to celebrate.  

Each person who completes the 100 Miles in 100 Days Walk will be eligible for prizes to be awarded at that time. The grand prize will be a $100 merchandise gift certificate to the new Ferrum Mercantile. Other prizes include $10 gift certificates good at our campus food venues!
