Captain Kickoff

Anyone who is interested in becoming a Walking Challenge Team Captain is welcome to watch the recorded Captain Kickoff from September 1. It answers questions about the challenge, reveals mini-challenges, and goes over changes to the walking challenge!

Fall 2020 Walking Challenge

Rules for the Fall 2020 Walking Challenge are similar to previous years.

  1. Teams must be at least 4 people and no more than 20 people. Keep in mind that friends and family are welcome to join the challenge (they can enter zeros for the employee ID).
  2. Individuals cannot have multiple Walker Tracker accounts or be on multiple teams. Participants will be asked to choose one team and one account, or else disqualify both teams they are on.
  3. Teams will be assigned to divisions (Light, Moderate, Competitive and Ultra-Competitive) during the challenge based on how their team average compares to the rest of the teams.
  4. Converted activities do not count towards step goals. The Fall 2020 Walking Challenge will be a steps-only challenge.
  5. Teams can choose to opt out of Walker Tracker and upload step averages each week via a Qualtrics form. Email Brittany if your team would like to opt out of Walker Tracker.
