With everything that you already have on your plate, it's tough to find time to develop and manage initiatives that engage employees in activities that help keep them healthy. That's why we've built the Step-It-Up Challenge, sponsored by Fitbit. It brings you all the benefits of a step program without all the management hassle.


Just assemble a team of at least two people that want to engage in some healthy competition, and go!


Registration for the Spring challenge will be open soon!!


  1. REGISTER YOUR TEAM: Visit our team registration page.

  2. INVITE TEAMMATES: After registering your team, you will then immediately receive a confirmation email containing a link that can be used to invite employees, friends, and family. 

  3. ENSURE TEAMMATES COMPLETE REGISTRATION: Make sure that all teammates (including you) complete the individual registration form.

  4. ACCEPT FITBIT INVITE: All individuals that register (including you) will receive an invite from Fitbit. But here is where it can get a bit confusing. The invite can come via email from Fitbit or through the Fitbit app. IF an invitation is not received, the individual must log into fitbit.com and accept their invitation. Learn more here.

No Fitbit? No problem! There are other ways to track your steps, learn more here



The team with the highest number of average steps gets lunch for up to 50 people (a $500 value) and a $500 donation made to your local Ronald McDonald House or school garden.

Q. How do I join the Facebook Group page? 

A. Search for “HAC Step It Up Challenge” or request an invite.


Q. I have 10,000 steps every day, but my team's score is lower than that. Why? 

A. Your team score is an average for the two weeks of the challenge across your whole team, so there are some members of your team not walking as much as you!
