To celebrate National Walking Day on Wednesday, April 5th the NIS Wellness Committee is kicking off the Spring into Action – Fitbit Challenge! Last year we had 33% participation and walked 17,362,394 steps / 7,548 miles! We walked all the way to Portland, Oregon. We had so much fun encouraging each other that we are doing it again!
Fitbit Challenge will start on Wednesday, April 5th and end on Tuesday, May 30th – for eight weeks there will be two separate weekly contests:
Activity Level Groups – If you are not part of an Activity Level Group, you will receive an invitation to be a part of one. You will be assigned to your activity group based on your average steps. Read more
Note: If you are currently part of an Activity Level Group we still need to know if you are participating in the Spring into Action – Fitbit Challenge, please sign up below!
The person with the most steps each week in each of the four Activity Level groups will be declared a winner. (4 total winners each week)
Activity Level Groups
On Wednesday morning, the Wellness Team will review the tab “Rankings for the past 7 days” for each activity level group and the individual with the most steps in each level – WINS a $25 gift card.
BONUS: There will be an average step goal every week, if you reach the goal and did not win in the past, you will be entered into a raffle to win a $25 gift card at the end of the challenge!
Each team will be RANDOMLY chosen and all Activity Levels will be represented in each team. Be sure to work together and encourage fellow members to have most steps by Tuesday evening.
The top three teams with the most combined steps will be declared winners for that week and receive raffle tickets for a chance to win one Spring into Action Basket at the end of the Challenge. The Spring into Action basket will contain various items for the entire team!
On Wednesday morning the Wellness Team will review the steps for each team and the teams with the most steps will be entered into the drawing!
At the end of the eight weeks we will pull the Lone Traveler and Walking the World winners and have a healthy lunch celebration! (Regional offices will receive a gift card for lunch)
Join the Spring into Action Fitbit Challenge by Friday, March 17th! Teams will be randomly selected on Wednesday, March 22nd.
