    No Elevators Day is a great idea. It’s about just taking that moment to not take the short cut, but to actually raise your heartbeat, take those stairs, reach for the top and get that extra exercise in. Get those extra paces into your day. So I think it is a marvellous idea. And when somebody always asks me what’s the fastest way to the top, it’s walking up an escalator. Don’t just stand still, be active!

  • Mirela Bitan Secretary, Romania

    It’s such an easy way to take care of your health! We wish it would take place at least once a week, EVERYWHERE, and hopefully taking the stairs becomes a reflex!

  • Ivan DimitrovIPSOS Game Changers Manager, Bulgaria

    None of our employees were opposed to taking part in the initiative, we are even thinking that it should not be just one day but more days of the year.

  • Donika Rizova Media Group Investor, Bulgaria

    We joined for a second consecutive year because we believe in a healthy lifestyle. Our employees are active, come to work with their bicycle, and use the stairs at work and at home. For us it is a way of life, and we hope by getting into No Elevators Day we will motivate our viewers to use the stairs.

No Elevators Day is an initiative of the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) as part of the NowWeMOVE campaign to get 100 million people more active by 2020.
