The Around the World  Activity Challenge is designed to encourage everyone to walk, de-stress and be more active. During this challenge, participants will work their way along a virtual map around the world by completing their favorite fitness activities.

This challenge is designed for all fitness levels. Push yourself harder each day and see what fitness goals you can achieve!

And remember, this is NOT just a steps challenge, any fitness activity counts!

Tracking Data

Employees can track steps and activities during the challenge in the following ways:

  • Use the Enter Steps widget to enter steps from a pedometer or a smart phone manually.
  • Use the Activities widget to enter the minutes when you participate in your favorite fitness activities.
  • Link your Fitbit or other wearable device to the challenge and your steps will be entered automatically when you log in.
  • Download the Employee Wellness Hub App (EWH) and enter data or track steps with your phone’s motion sensor or link your iPhone health kit (Apple Watch) or Google Fit app.

Rules

Employees will participate in the challenge as individuals. Please read these challenge rules:

  • Registration is open now.
  • Employees will track steps and/or minutes of activities by logging into the challenge website and using the trackers in the “Track Data” tab, or by linking a wearable device. If you want to track data on your smart phone, you can also download the app.
  • All activities entered are converted to their equivalent number of steps automatically by the challenge website and applied to the challenge.
  • Employees can track up to 7 days in the past if needed. Entries beyond 7 days from the activity completion date will be flagged for review and will only be permitted if approved by the Challenge Administrator.
