First Annual Think 2019
Well-Being Steps Challenge
in San Francisco, CA

Join us for the first annual Think Steps Challenge! This step challenge proudly supports the American Heart Association and its mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.


For every Think attendee that achieves the goal of 25K steps during the Think Steps Challenge, IBM will donate $25 to the American Heart Association. Don’t forget to sign up and visit our Steps Challenge Leaderboard in the Moscone South Lobby to see how we are tracking!

In addition to the 25K step goal donation, the final top 10 Steps Challenge Participants will be eligible to pick up their onsite gift at the Well-being Info Desk on Friday, February 15th from 11am-12pm.


Participants can track their steps using their own
personal Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin, or the step
trackers integrated on their iPhone/Android
smartphone via Apple Health or Google Fit.*
