Step by step, Grand Canyon University employees can get healthier and win prizes, and they can do it together.

The 2014 Team Walking Challenge, sponsored by the GCU Wellness Committee, is scheduled to begin March 10 and go through May 10. The goal is for teams of up to 10 GCU employees to walk 10,000 steps apiece per day. That’s about five miles.

What to expect during the challenge:

  • Pedometers provided to each participant
  • A website tracker to log your steps
  • Weekly challenges and prizes to keep you motivated

To register, click here . Make sure you include Grand Canyon University in the “Company” field, and your team name should be entered in the “Dept/Team” field. It’s important to spell your team name correctly.

If you don’t have a team but still want to participate, contact any of the Wellness Committee members, listed on LopeNet. The committee will help you find a team.
