Join the 6-week walking challenge to get fit, feel better and win prizes!
When it comes to improving your health and fitness – every day is a good day to get started. And, when we turn it into a friendly competition and offer the chance to win fabulous prizes – what are you waiting for?
The 10K-A-Day program tracks your steps to take you virtually through far off places and provides resources, articles and interactive message boards to keep you motivated.
Take it one step at a time, starting today!
How does it work?
- Track your steps from September 7 through October 18. All employees who are eligible for the Olympic Steel UnitedHealthcare medical plan are encouraged to participate, and team participation is recommended (but not required).
- Participants have a goal of achieving 90 points (15 points a week) by working up to 10,000 steps each day and completing Step It Up challenges each week.
- The closer you get to 10,000 steps each day, the more points you’ll earn.
- Every two weeks you’ll visit a new city, unlocking attractions and earning points each day you record steps. Plus, you’ll answer trivia questions and learn about each of the locations you visit!
Prefer to do something other than walk? The app will convert some activities to steps, so those exercises will contribute to your total. The 10K-A-Day Wellness Challenge will get you moving, improve your health and increase your energy – not to mention the opportunity to earn prizes and bragging rights!
What can you win?
Teams earn points each week by tracking steps and completing the Step It Up challenges. The more steps you track, the more points you earn, the higher you’ll be on the leaderboard. The top three teams will win prizes:
First Place: wireless earbuds
Second Place: a FitBit
Third Place: sporting goods gift card
Getting started is easy!
