Spring 2022 Walking Challenge

April 4 – May 1

Spring 2022 Walking Challenge

Put a spring in your step this April and journey with us around the world to spring time festivals that celebrate life returning to full bloom! Invite co-workers and family members to step (or roll) together and compete against other UF and UF Health departments for the trophy!

Did you know? In Gloucester, England it's spring tradition for competitors to race down a steep hill, chasing a massive wheel of cheese!

About the challenge

The Spring Walking Challenge is a four-week, competitive team walking challenge. Over the course of the challenge, you will track your steps (or comparable distance if using a wheelchair) using the Walker Tracker website/app (Learn more about Walker Tracker) to step towards victory. There will also be a surprise bonus activity, so be sure to watch your email for details!

Walker Tracker How-To’s

Step 1: Creating an Account

If you do not already have an account with Walker Tracker, you will need to create one! Follow these simple steps:

  1. Visit GatorCare.WalkerTracker.com. Click “Register Now” on the right side of the screen.
  2. Enter your contact information (UF Health Employees: Your Employee ID is located on the back of your badge. UF Employees: Enter your UFID. Family/Friends: Enter 00000000 as your Employee ID.)
  3. Agree to the terms of service and click Submit! Then download the Walker Tracker app for convenient step tracking throughout the challenge.

Step 2: Synchronizing a Device

Did you know that you can sync your step-tracking device to automatically send your steps to Walker Tracker? Walker Tracker can sync with dozens of devices, including Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin, Withings, and more. Watch the video below to learn how to synchronize your device, or follow the Walker Tracker tutorials.

Don’t have a supported device? You can manually enter your steps throughout the challenge. Follow the instructions for the app or for a web browser.

Please note: You must do one or the other, not both. For example, if you have your Fitbit connected you cannot manually track your steps too.

Step 3: Convert Your Activity

If you are rolling with us this challenge, you can convert your distance to steps! Follow these instructions for the app or for a web browser, selecting “wheelchair,” to be on your way to victory!

Please note: The only activity conversion allowed in this challenge is “wheelchair.”
