Step up to the Step To It Challenge

Take the first step toward better health by registering for the Hennepin County Step To It Challenge today. Participate in this four-week physical activity campaign designed to help us all get walking more each day after a long winter.

Walking more for the challenge gives you all of the benefits of regular exercise, including more energy, less stress and lower risks of heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Plus you’ll be eligible to win Twins tickets and other prizes.

Every step counts

The Step To It Challenge is a friendly competition to see which participating Hennepin County worksite or community is the most active. You can help City of Minneapolis employees earn some bragging rights.

Worksites in Hennepin County compete against each other May 3-30 for the title of most active and engaged worksite. All of your steps will count toward the City of Minneapolis’ worksite step totals.

You can also pick any participating community in Hennepin County to walk for (even if you don’t live in it). All of your steps will count toward that community’s totals in the competition for the most active community award. In addition, each community will award its top stepper (the person with the highest total number of steps) with a pair of Minnesota Twins tickets. The top steppers will be recognized on the field at the Twins game. Individuals from each community who log their steps daily will have another chance to win Minnesota Twins tickets through a random drawing.

Throughout the challenge, Hennepin County staff will keep you informed about how many steps participating organizations are logging so you’ll know how the competition is stacking up. At the end of the challenge, Hennepin County staff will tally results and award prizes.

If you are interested in purchasing a pedometer to count your steps, you can find one at your local sports equipment store. In addition, most smartphones can download free or low-cost pedometer apps (iPhone, Android, Blackberry).
