Walk to Health


Get Ready for the Next Team Challenge: World at Play

The world is your playground! On this trek around the globe, discover the many creative ways people enjoy spending their leisure time. Like glima wrestling in Iceland, rugby in New Zealand, or fly fishing in Argentina. As you add steps, you’ll experience something fascinating and new at each stop!

Registration Open Date: Friday, August 26, 2022
Challenge Start Date: Monday, September 5, 2022
Challenge End Date: Sunday, October 2, 2022

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. Participants need to average 7,000 steps/day to earn Wellness Rewards credit.

If you exercise outdoors, please do so safely. Fresh air and walking outdoors is great, but keep some distance between yourself and others. Please follow your state and local guidelines for outdoor activity.

Register in the Virgin Pulse wellness portal and track your steps with a synced device or manually.
