Mission To Move FAQ

  • What is the Mission to Move Campaign?
    1. At SMC, we are on a mission to get more active! This is why we have set a goal to move (walk, bike, swim, dance, OR WHATEVER) our way across North America, from Cocoa Beach, FL to Barrow, Alaska and back. That is a total of 8132 miles! We aim to get it done between January, 2018 and March, 2018
  • How do I get involved?
    1. Register and join our team here:  See step-by-step instructions here.  (NOTE: Membership to the Walker Tracker community is free.  
    2. Download the free Walker Tracker app to your phone.
    3. Make sure you have an app or wearable device to track your steps daily. EVERY STEP COUNTS (not just the ones you take when you are out for exercise). Here are a few options.
      1. Download free apps to your phone, such as Pedometer or Map My Walk.
      2. Purchase an inexpensive pedometer at Walmart and wear it at all times.  
      3. Use wearable devices such as Fitbit, Jawbone, up, or others.  
    4. Log your steps into WalkerTracker daily, or at least weekly.  Church progress will be provided each Sabbath, so be sure to have your steps logged in by Friday afternoon.  
  • What kind of activity counts?
    1. ANY activity counts and will move us closer to Barrow and then back home faster!  You can swim, bike, roller blade, or even bowl!  The bottom line is MOVE!  Here is a chart that converts activities into steps:
  • What is the contest?
    1. We have 8132 miles to move.  And we have over 800 members in our church.  How many people do you believe will get involved?  We have a fun contest going on to determine who will guess the date we will complete our mission.  How long do you think it will take our church to move 8132 miles??!  Cast your vote here:
