is a fun month-long challenge where teams from across the city will compete to be crowned the STEPtember 2018 winner
! If you participated in last year’s competition, please be sure to read through carefully, as some of the details have changed.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
This year’s challenge is TEAM-BASED by agency.
- Each participating agency is given a set number of teams based on their size.
- WorkWell NYC will set up teams for participants to join. Teams will be identifiable by your agency’s name (i.e. CCRB-1. CCRB-2) and logo.
- Teams will consist of 20 spots and must have a minimum of 15 people in order to compete.
- Participants (from the same agency) that are interested in being on the same team should register for the same team (i.e. DOH-2) once registration begins.
- Participants can switch their teams as many times as they would like, however, this feature will be turned off once the challenge begins.
- Please encourage participants to register early as spots are limited!
The STEPtember Walking Challenge is powered by MoveSpring.
- Participants can access MoveSpring via the web or mobile device.
- Most wearable devices sync with MoveSpring (including Fitbit, Apple Watch, Jawbone, etc.), however, participants are not required to have a wearable device to participate. Pedometers are welcomed!
- iPhones and Androids are able to track steps as long as long as the device is being carried at all times!
All employees are encouraged to participate!
- Android phones require the Google Fit app to be installed in addition to the MoveSpring app in order to sync steps.
- This year, WorkWell NYC wants to ensure that employees with varying levels of physical ability can participate. Our goal is inclusion!
- If any employee identifies themselves as having any physical limitations and would like to participate in the challenge, please have them contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information on how to register.
