    I teach online for the UBC Education faculty and live in Victoria. Do I need to join a team to participate in the walkabout? Without a pedometer, should I just use the standard 1300 steps per km?

      Hi Susan,

      You can sign up for Walkabout as an individual as well and you don’t have to be part of a team. Register here: http://walkabout.educ.ubc.ca/registration/.

      You can purchase a pedometer or use any other type of fitness tracker. You may have a tracker app on your phone. For tracking information, please visit http://walkabout.educ.ubc.ca/teams/.

      If you need anything else, please email me at melissa.lafrance@ubc.ca.

      Thanks!
