Emory employees can have fun with coworkers and earn medical plan incentives — and prizes — during the annual Move More Challenge, which kicks off March 14. Registration is now open.

With spring upon us, it’s time again for Emory employees to come together and join the Move More Challenge, a fun and friendly competition where you team up to track your steps and climb the leaderboards. Now in its seventh year, the Move More Challenge is open to registrants.

The six-week challenge officially kicks off Monday, March 14.

Last year’s participants had a blast reaching more than 1.6 billion total steps. The goal is even higher for 2022: two billion steps.

More than 97% of participants in 2021 recommended the Move More Challenge to other Emory employees. As one participant shared, “I would recommend the Move More Challenge to all my colleagues. You have absolutely nothing to lose but be quite sure you will take a few extra steps toward your well-being.”

Some participants indicated that they did have something to lose: weight.

Comments included, “Over the course of the challenge, I lost nearly 15 pounds” and “The challenge motivated me to move more. With eating healthy also, I've lost 26 pounds and I am continuing to walk every day.”

Now is the time to join them and take steps to improve your own well-being through the Move More Challenge.

Earn rewards while you Move More

Participants have the opportunity to win some awesome prizes and earn Emory medical plan incentives. Some of the incentives in 2022 include:

  • Earn $87.50 toward your Emory medical plan by connecting a device, enabling automatic step tracking and achieving 252,000 cumulative steps by the end of the challenge (6,000 steps per day).
  • Register and enable automatic step tracking by March 20 for a chance to win a pair of Atlanta Hawks tickets (one winner).
  • Achieve 50,000 steps by March 25 for a chance to win a pair of Atlanta Hawks tickets (four winners).
