HKU Virtual Walking Challenge

We are thrilled to invite you to embark on an exciting journey with us as we take on the ultimate challenge inspired by the Olympic Games 2024, which takes place in Paris. This year, we have 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 encourages 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 aims 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.

This time we have partnered with the Computer Science department again to further develop our HKU Walking Challenge App, which is created exclusively for this challenge. The walking app is user-friendly and helps to keep track of your daily steps, show your own and your team’s performance as well as the rankings of the HKU Walking Challenge.
