Download the Toolkit
Enter one team or multiple teams in the Challenge. This toolkit is designed to assist you in a successful wellness campaign. If you would like to use this Challenge to help you manage your own company's wellness challenge, you will have access to the following by utilizing the web-based tools:
- A list of team participants
- Which team achieved the highest percentage of weight loss
- A list of team participants who earned weekly badges
A new feature this year is the opportunity for participants to earn two weekly mini-challenges badges.
We have learned that participants enjoy small, weekly goals that are attainable and represent the small steps toward big changes. Each week, participants will have the opportunity to earn two "badges" by completing activities designed to help them improve their overall wellness. There are unique healthy eating and physical activity goals each week.
The 10-week Challenge encourages participants to:
- Record their weight each week using an online tracking tool by 11:59am each Monday.
- Please note: participants will see their personal weight only and team weight loss will be displayed as a percentage of weight lost for the entire team.
- Record progress on weekly mini-challenges and activity each week using online tracking tools.
- Check the website for weekly goal setting and wellness tips.
- How you can participate
- How to register as one company team
- How to register multiple teams within your company
- Ideas for engaging employees in the challenge
