Move More Challenge

This fun annual challenge gets you moving more as you compete with your co-workers and log your steps with a tracking device.

About the Challenge

The Move More Challenge began in 2015 as a way to engage Emory employees in more physical activity and has continued every year since then. The challenge has been widely successful at Emory, with thousands of employees participating.

Join the 2019 Challenge

The 2019 Move More Challenge takes place March 25-May 5, 2019. Registration opens March 8.

The challenge is open to benefits-eligible employees of Emory University and Emory Healthcare as well as pre-65 retirees (with medical coverage).

Participants will create their own teams and work together on a virtual journey to 10 Emory destinations. At each destination, the team will unlock fun facts and health and well-being tips.

To get started:

  1. Join Healthy Emory Connect. If you are already joined, go to Step 2.
  2. Register for the 2019 Move More Challenge beginning March 8.
  3. Create or join a team. Teams can have a maximum of 10 people and any changes to teams must be made before the challenge starts on March 25.
  4. Connect your favorite device (you can participate with a number of activity tracking devices including Fitbit, Apple Watch, and Garmin, or your smartphone).
  5. Start moving more! Accumulate steps for points towards your medical plan incentives, plus an opportunity to win fantastic prizes.

The Fitbit store is open

If you want to purchase a Fitbit, you can get a partial subsidy from Emory, making the cost more affordable. Emory employees can receive one Fitbit at the Emory rate and up to two more at the Family and Friends rate.
