While it definitely still feels like summer, our employees are gearing up for our fall wellness challenge. STEPtember, our fall Fitbit challenge, officially kicked off on September 3 and will run until October 14.
This year, employees have been challenged to meet a company-wide goal of 35,000,000 steps and an individual, weekly goal of 59,500 steps. Employees who meet their weekly step goals and overall step goal (348,500 steps) have the chances to win gift cards and prizes. If employees reach the company-wide goal, ms will be making a donation of STEM resources to local schools.
A NEW ADDITION FOR THE 2018 WELLNESS PROGRAM
This year during the STEPtember challenge, ms will hold its First Annual Companywide Poker Walk/Run on October 12.
Employees will have 45 minutes to walk or run a ¼ mile loop around the office. Each time they cross the finish line they will pull a card from the deck and the individual with the best poker hand will walk away with a wellness gift basket and bragging rights!
