Get moving this semester with our 9-week walking challenge for Employee Wellness participants. (Students are also welcome to register.) Pedometers will be provided to the first 100 participants to sign up to help keep track of steps and activity. Participants can also use FitBits if they have one. The program will run March 1 through May 1.
There are lots of incentives this year: prizes will be awarded to the top three participants with the highest number of steps; participants that submit steps for at least 45 days will receive a prize; and recognition will be given to the top three departments with the highest average step counts. So get your friends and co-workers together and start stepping! Any questions can be directed to Kate at email@example.com.
