City-Wide Walking Challenge - Benefiting the American Heart Association

Walking Challenge logoIt's time for another City-Wide Walking Challenge! Walk your way to better health AND help the American Heart Association!

The 2016 Challenge Will Run April 6 - May 6

Here's how it works:
  • Gather your co-workers and create a walking team - between 2 and 8 people.
  • There will be 2 divisions: Field and Desk. Decide which division your team belongs - Field is for those that are up and about for most of their job; Desk is for those who spend most of their job at a desk. Have people in each? Choose the division that most of your team members are in. For example if you have an 8 person team, and at least 5 of them work at a desk, then you’d be a Desk Team.
  • Each participant must submit an entry fee donation of $5. Deliver your entry fees of $5 to Nikki Crisp in Finance – 100% of the proceeds go directly to the the American Heart Association!
  • To sign up, submit your team information (team name, leader, Field or Desk division, team member names and employee numbers, and how many pedometers you need) here: www.surveymonkey.com/s/inBalance_Walking_Challenge_Signup
  • Not sure what your employee number is? Find out on sharepoint.
  • Track your steps any way you choose - cell phones, Fitbits, pedometers all apply. inBalance pedometers are available upon request. All steps count - walking, running, weekday, weekend, at work, at home. (FYI: 2,000 steps = 1 mile). 
  • Log your steps here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/inBalance_Walking_Challenge
  • Just enter your name and employee number (the same way it was submitted when you signed up) and the number of steps you took from the last time you logged your steps.

And the winner is…
The top two teams from each division will receive awards and bragging rights! So join a team and START WALKING!
