Organise an event to spread the word and increase awareness about the day. The official day can be used as a kickoff to a year-long, or month-long campaign to encourage everyone to take the stairs at work. Don’t forget to put a sign at the elevator reminding people to use the stairwell. Don’t forget to give incentives and prizes to encourage people to climb stairs!
