Ready, Set, Move!
Wellness Walking Challenge

May 21 - July 15

shoes The spring season brings warm weather, longer days, and bright colors; an inviting combination that provides us with the opportunity to get outside and rediscover all that mother nature has to offer. The spring season also means it's time to  make strides and spring forward your activity level with the annual Healthier U "Ready, Set, Move!" Wellness Walking Challenge !

WHAT IT IS

"Ready, Set, Move!" Wellness Walking Challenge , which will take place during an 8-week period, is an incentive program designed to get people moving more and help them lead a healthier lifestyle. The program is offered in both an individual and team format to provide a variety of options for engagement, encouragement, and comradery.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

The program begins Monday 5/21, so please register ASAP. During registration, you will be asked to choose a challenge track. Options include:

  • Participation (individual) - This track rewards regular instances of walking versus competition. The track is not limited to walking solely; the goal is to accumulate either 10,000 steps per day or a minimum of 30 minutes of any cardiovascular exercise (e.g. walking, running, jogging, cycling, elliptical, etc.) per day at least five times per week. This meets the CDC's recommendation of a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week. More details include:
    • Each week will start on Monday and end on Sunday.
    • Instances of cardiovascular exercise can be completed whenever and wherever is most convenient.
    • The 30 minutes can be cumulative over the course of an entire day (e.g. 10 minutes in the morning, 10 minutes after lunch then 10 minutes in the evening).
    • You will report your previous week's success each subsequent Monday or Tuesday.
    • Healthier U prizes will be awarded to all participants as follows:
      • 0-5 successful weeks: No reward
      • 6 successful weeks: Tier 3 ($) reward
      • 7 successful weeks: Tier 2 ($$) reward
      • 8 successful weeks: Tier 1 ($$$) reward
  • Competition (team) - This track rewards teams that have the highest average number of steps per team member during the course of the entire eight weeks. More details include:
    • Each week will start on Monday and end on Sunday.
    • Participants will create their own teams and may have between two and ten members.
      • If you do not have a team but would like to participate in the competition track, please indicate during registration and we will assign you a team.
    • Participants can walk as an individual; however, we recommend working out with a teammate to improve your physical and social wellbeing.
    • Each team must designate a team captain.
    • Team members will report their weekly activity to the team captain, who will then report the data to Healthier U.
    • The top five teams with the highest average number of steps per team member will receive prizes.
  • Both - Double your chances of winning Healthier U prizes by participating in both tracks!

Once registered, you will receive a welcome email containing more program details.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Every Wednesday participants will receive an email including a progress report, link to program standings, tips to get you moving, and a quiz or challenge to win some Healthier U prizes. These mid-week incentives will help reinforce your commitment and maintain excitement throughout the program.
