7th Annual WPI Walking Challenge

“Walk this way” to a healthier you! 

In collaboration with edHEALTH, WPI will kick off the 7th Annual Walking Challenge beginning on June 3rd. This initiative will run 5 weeks and end with the last steps collected on July 6th. Gather your colleagues and strap on your sneakers! Each step counts toward the total for the WPI Team. All employees can participate! You don’t need to receive health insurance through WPI to take part in this month-long challenge. Each employee can participate by creating an account using the instructions listed below and connecting step tracking devices with the IncentFit app, which is provided in partnership with Harvard Pilgrim Health Plan. For more information click here.

Did you say prizes? A weekly prize is awarded to each edHEALTH participating school from a drawing of eligible participants PLUS the school with the highest daily average steps earns a trophy and an end-of-year celebration with an ice cream social. In addition, WPI participants will be entered for a chance to win a FitBit Versa 4 Smartwatch + GPS at the end of the challenge!

How can I sync a step/fitness tracker app/device?
  1. Log in to your IncentFit account and select My Account > All Apps & Devices from the menu.
  2. Locate your app/device on the list.
  3. Click “Start Auto Syncing” and follow the on-screen instructions. Be sure to read all the information when connecting, as some devices have specific instructions. For most devices, you must share “Profile” and “Exercise/ Activity” to sync properly.

Note: Google Fit/Samsung Health (Android) and Apple Health (iPhone) are free apps that turn your phone into a pedometer. To sync data from these services, be sure to open the IncentFit mobile app or log into the IncentFit website every few days. Most other tracker services such as Fitbit and Garmin will sync automatically every 24 hours once synced with your IncentFit account.

If you have any questions on setting up your account or syncing a device, please contact Living Well Support at LivingWellSupport@point32health.org or by phone at (877) 594-7183, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. EST.

We look forward to walking with you soon!
