In addition to your steps, the Wellbeing Challenge is designed to give you opportunities to accumulate more steps by participating in different Bonus Activities including yoga, career goals, practicing gratitude and more. Plus, the app converts your other physical activities (i.e. rowing, biking, or swimming) into steps.
To join, just follow 3 simple steps:
1) Download the "Heka Well" Challenge app
2) Set up your Challenge account
Launch the Challenge app and select "ASK Wellbeing Challenge" from the list
Complete the in-app registration process
Select your Team and earn the chance to donate to the AMD charity of the Team Leader's choice. It is a fun way to compete with other Sales Kick Off participants/teams. The top teams will display on the Team Leaderboard within the app as well as on the Challenge website
Pair your step tracker
Android: Track your steps using your smartphone * by pairing with Phone Step Tracker (note, if you get a "Functionality limited" pop-up just press "OK" as the app does not need location access to track your steps)
3) Start stepping!

Please make sure you are actively logged into the Challenge app and SYNC YOUR STEP DATA FREQUENTLY, AT LEAST ONE TIME PER DAY as some data sources will not provide step data that is over 24 hours old
Note that your steps will only count from the time you first pair your tracker
