Get Ready for the Next Team Challenge: Mindful Exploration

What does mindfulness mean? It’s about being aware of yourself and being present in the moment. It’s not a foreign idea—most cultures have mindful practices. During this challenge, you’ll be going around the world learning about them. Are you and your team ready? Time to step!

Registration Open Date: Monday, April 1, 2024
Challenge Start Date: Monday, April 8, 2024
Challenge End Date: Sunday, May 5, 2024

You are welcome to register as a team of one, but for most walkers the challenge goal becomes more achievable, and more fun, as you add coworkers. All your steps will be added together, so you'll reach exciting, new destinations quicker when you participate in a team. To earn the $50 Wellness Rewards credit, teams need to reach the final destination -or- an individual participant needs to average 7,000 steps/day.

Log into the Virgin Pulse wellness portal to join the fun and track your steps with a synced device or manually!
