Andes Mountain Trek - Mobile Health Team Challenge

Registration for the Andes Mountain Trek Mobile Health Team Challenge opens Monday, April 25, 2022!  Your mission is to work together with your team to walk one million steps and travel through the Andes Mountains..  This four week challenge starts on May 2, 2022 and ends May 29, 2022.  The Andes Mountain Trek challenge counts towards the 2022 Mobile Health challenge requirement to receive the 2023 $50.00 per month Wellness Credit.  

You can create or join a team of up to 10 people. The more people that are on a team, the faster you will reach one million steps!  One person on your team should be designated the team captain.  The team captain will set up the team on the Mobile Health app or website and invite the other teammates to join their team with the team’s registration code.  Once the challenge begins on May 2nd, you cannot change teams.  Registration for the Andes Mountain Trek challenge closes on Friday, May 6, 2022. To start, download and register on Mobile Health here (if you haven’t already). Select ‘Andes Mountain Trek’ under Team Challenges (challenge will be visible on April 25th). 

Before the challenge begins, get ready by adding your activity tracker to your Mobile Health app.  You can also manually enter your daily steps or exercise. 

If your team reaches 1,000,000 steps, everyone on the team will receive a raffle ticket entry to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card.  Five winners will be chosen at random.  The team with the most steps overall will also win $25 Amazon Gift Cards.

Don’t miss your opportunity to complete a team challenge, one of the four requirements to earn your Wellness Credit!
