Ready to improve your health and do good at the same time? When you, your spouse, and fellow Sandians take 500 million steps during this challenge, you will unlock a $10,000 donation to organizations supporting local LGBTQ youth. You exceeded 500 million steps during last year’s Healthy Living, Healthy Giving challenge, so do it again for a great cause!
Join this six-week step challenge to integrate mindfulness into your life to improve your relationships with family, friends, colleagues, and the community.
This is a six-week step challenge tracked on Virgin Pulse. Your spouse is eligible to participate, and friendly division competitions are encouraged.
You earn Virgin Pulse points as you track your steps during the challenge. Once all of the participants accumulate a total of 500 million steps together, by the deadline, Sandia will make the charitable donation.
