100 Steps Stair Challenge

The countdown has started! The Stairs Day will be celebrated on September 22. Inspire and let yourself be inspired by the health initiative #100trappsteg.

“Stair climbing is a great way to improve your health. You get both a heart rate increase and you activate the body’s largest muscles – thighs and glutes. We know today that all our common public health problems can be prevented by physical activity. And stairs are everywhere, they are free of charge and you do not need any special equipment. It’s just a matter of avoiding the elevator and look for the stairs!”

Professor Mai-Lis Hellenius

#100trappsteg every day, the rest of your life

Take the stairs and make it a habit

The idea behind #100trappsteg is to encourage people to take 100 steps each day, for the rest of their lives, to get fit, strong and healthy.

The project is run by Mattias Sunneborn and Jenny Åkervall​. The Stairs Day is a collaboration between Region Stockholm,  Suicide Zero, Karolinska institutet, Hjärt-Lungfonden and Generation Pep.

June 15 - September 22

Health Promotion supports and is a part of this initiative. Help us to spread the word and inspire others to take the stairs.

Where do you find your stairs?

Where are the beautiful, the hidden and forgotten stairs?

How can we encourage people to take the stairs instead of the elevator?
