How The Challenge Works
Participants must be a member of the WCA Group Health Trust.

  • All team members must be at least 16 years old.
  • A team leader is chosen to be the contact person and to report weekly team points. You can only be a team leader for one team.
  • During the challenge, participants will track their activity for each week. Their total points for the week will then be reported to their team leader.
  • A team can have 1-4 members. All teams compete in one category. For example, a two-person team will compete against a four member team. Winning teams are determined by their overall point total.

How Points Are Earned
Participants can earn points each day depending on the amount of time they spend doing a physical activity. Choose which category you achieved and record the corresponding points. For example, if you did a 55-minute workout you would report 3 points for that day.

  • 1-30 minutes/day = 1 point
  • 31-60 minutes/day = 3 points
  • 61-120 minutes/day = 5 points
  • 121 or more minutes/day = 7 points
