By Shari Murnahan DLA Land and Maritime SAPR Team

PURPOSE. In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month (SAAPM), the DLA SAPR program invites all DLA employees, worldwide, to participate in a virtual “Going the Distance for SAPR” challenge. Our goal is to get the word out across the DLA enterprise about the SAPR program and resources, but most important, participation will show support for survivors.

This challenge will be going on for the entire month of April. We will abide by the honor system and participants will track and report their individual progress weekly using the attached tracker. Email the tracker weekly to SAPR Team.

  • Participants can earn points via a variety of activities. Physical activities such as Fitness Center classes, usual exercise, such as; walking, running, swimming, cycling, strength building step counting can earn points and be logged on their tracker. Distance should be logged in points (for example: 30 minutes of strength training equals 500 points or 1 mile of distance activity/ 2000 steps equals 100 points). Points can also be earned by wearing teal on Tuesday’s in April, “liking” the DSCC MWR Facebook page, participating in activities such as Walk a Lap for a Survivor, Denim Day and Climate of Respect events.
  • Registration will be ongoing through the month. Participants can register anytime throughout the month and start tracking their progress. Interested participants should register by email the SAPR Team.
