10,000 Step Challenge

On behalf of the MarkeTo District BIA, we proudly present The MarkeTo District 10,000 Step Challenge! To keep ourselves safe, many of us were stuck inside this past spring and winter season and as a result, we are moving our bodies less and less. We know getting fresh air and daily physical exercise are activities we can all do to support our health.

Our goal with The MarkeTo District 10,000 Step Challenge is to invite residents and visitors in our community to get their daily steps in by walking around the entire BIA from Dufferin Street and Lawrence Avenue West all the way down to Wingold Ave and back again three times to complete 10,000 steps.

We encourage you to walk at your own speed and pace. Remember to take your time and take breaks (maybe stop to grab an ice cream or coffee!!) before continuing your steps.

Here is how to participate in the challenge:

  1. Pick any decal on the ground as your starting point, remember the colour of the decal and your surroundings.
  2. Follow the red wayfinding markers on the sidewalk around the BIA three times to your original starting point to complete 10,000 steps for the day!
  3. When you have completed the challenge, take a photo, and share it us on social media! Tag us @MarketoDistrictBIA and #Marketo10

The BIA would like to extend a special thank you to our business members for sponsoring our challenge.

Thank you to STEPS Public Art and their partners at RBC Royal Bank for selecting MarkeTo District to participate in the I HeART Main Street Challenge.

The beautiful sidewalk decals were created by the incredible artist, Mel Hayes @melhayes.

The decals were printed at Signarama Etobicoke.

The wayfinding markers are supplied from No Skidding Products Inc.
