Step up to the First Annual ATS Walking Challenge. Every step helps raise money for the ATS Foundation.

Engage in friendly competition against other attendees with the ATS Walking Challenge. Win prizes and watch it all unfold in real-time via leaderboards throughout the convention.

Join the American Diabetes Association in a Walking Challenge at the 76th Scientific Sessions in New Orleans!

The Challenge has been graciously supported by AstraZeneca and will encourage us all to “walk the walk” and engage in some friendly competition.

The ATS Walking Challenge Mobile App also supports attendees that prefer to use their own FitBit, Jawbone or iPhone/Android smart phone step counters (2)

The first 2,000 registrants will receive a free ATS wireless activity tracker to use with the ATS Walking Challenge Mobile App (1)

  • 1st place – Microsoft Surface Pro

  • 2nd place – Fitbit Surge

  • 3rd place – Zolt Laptop Charger Plus

Visit the Teva Respiratory booth #419 each day for a step booster.
