May 20

Get ready to step it up – edHEALTH’s popular “Walk This Way to a Healthier You” challenge returns on Monday, June 8. A team from each participating school will compete for the edHEALTH walking challenge trophy and end-of-contest ice cream celebration.Team employees strive for 10,000 steps per day. We’ll send tips for meeting and exceeding this goal. Last year, over 750 employees participated, walking a total of 200 million steps over the four-week competition. This year’s challenge ends on Saturday, July 4.

Weekly and Grand Prizes: For every week of the walking challenge, two winners from each school will receive a “Walk ThisWay” local gift card valued at $50 or $100, depending on steps walked. Participants walking an average of 5,000 steps per day or 35,000 steps per weekare eligible for the $50 gift card; those walking an average of 10,000 steps perday/ 70,000 steps per week are eligible for the $100 gift card. The top stepper at each competing school wins a grand prize gift card.

Easy Tracking: Participants connect their fitness tracker or device app to Harvard Pilgrim’s wellness account. All participating schools and employees are eligible, regardless of health plan. We’ll send instructions in advance.

Last year, Wentworth Institute of Technology won the walking challenge and took home the coveted edHEALTH trophy. Which member school will win this year? Although we don’t know yet, we do know that everyone will have fun participating and being active.
