Employees invited to join summer walking challenge
All University employees are invited to take part in a summer walking challenge scheduled to run from Tuesday, June 4 through Monday, July 1.
The “Walk This Way to a Healthier You” competition will pit Salve Regina against all other edHEALTH colleges and universities. EdHEALTH is the employee health insurance collaboration Salve Regina joined in 2016 to offer quality health care at lower costs.
The goal is to walk 10,000 steps per day, seven days a week, for four weeks. Each week, two raffle winners from each institution will receive a themed gift basket valued at $50 or $100 (depending on the number of steps walked). There will also be a grand prize for the top stepper at each institution.
All Salve Regina participants will compete as a team against teams from Bentley University, Berklee College of Music, Boston College, Brandeis University, Clark University, Emerson College, Franklin W. Olin College, Lasell College, Lesley University, Regis College, Suffolk University, Wellesley College, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Wheaton College and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
To join the challenge and log their steps, participants should create a guest account at harvardpilgrim.org/wellnessaccount. Salve’s guest code is C22199. Last year’s participants should use their current username and password.
