Walking Challenge

Get involved with a little healthy competition.

This multi-week walking challenge will encourage you and your coworkers to get up and get moving! The goal is to move more throughout the day, whether it be parking further away, taking a walk during lunch, or doing an exercise video at home. Participants and teams track and record their daily steps throughout the challenge.
