WPI Plans for Fall Opening Latest Information

The Annual Walking Challenge

June 13, 2020

 

It's not too late to join the Walking Challenge!

Are you ready to walk your way to better health?  May the best school win!  WPI, edHEALTH, and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care* are proud to invite you to take part in a Walking Challenge for all employees!
 
What is edHEALTH, you ask?  edHEALTH is the employee health insurance collaboration WPI joined to harness our power in numbers to successfully offer quality healthcare at lower costs. This edHEALTH walking challenge is just an example of how we can all come together to engage employees in their own health to control the ever-increasing cost of healthcare.

The Walking Challenge will put your skills to the test by daring you to hit (or exceed) either 5,000 or 10,000 steps per day, seven days a week, for one month! (Employees with mobility concerns are invited to work with the Harvard Pilgrim Wellness Services to develop an alternate participation plan.) Everyone who meets the step goal each week will be entered into a raffle to win great prizes. You will be competing against all of the other edHEALTH institutions for a grand prize to include bragging rights.  May the best school win!

The Walking Challenge will run from June 8, 2020 through July 4, 2020. We hope you’ll accept the Challenge! To register please follow the steps on ‘Register for the Walking Challenge’ document. Also, please see

 

*Please note: All current active employees are eligible to participate, regardless of health insurance carrier. Harvard Pilgrim is hosting the Walking Challenge but you do not have to be a member of Harvard Pilgrim or Tufts to join in.
