Have a resolve for a fitter, healthier and happier you in 2024? Walk the walk and take strides towards your health and wellbeing goals with the Walking Challenge.

Registrations are now open for the 2024 Walking Challenge!

Lace-up your walking shoes for a 4-week journey, starting Monday 26 February to Sunday 24 March.

Great prizes are on offer throughout the challenge rewarding the fleet-footed top teams.

The Walking Challenge is a great opportunity to connect with your colleagues outside of work, participate in some healthy competition, and work together to achieve your wellbeing goals. You can also get your family and friends involved to keep you motivated.

So, muster 2 or 3 people for a team and get registered for the Walking Challenge! Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Assemble your team.

A team should consist of 3 or 4 people – they can be employees, family or friends. Once you know your teammates and have delegated a teammate to be the team leader, decide on a team name.

  1. Register your participation by Wednesday 21 February.

Every employee team member must use the online registration form to sign up for the Walking Challenge 2024 and accept a payroll deduction for the registration fee for themself and any non-Monash Health employees participating.
Participation costs $20 per person via a payroll deduction. For participants wishing to buy a step-counting device for the challenge, participation will cost $25 per person via payroll deduction.

  1. Start your challenge on Monday 26 February and keep walking!

It is recommended that each team member aims for at least 10,000 steps a day. Make sure you record your steps on the Health at Work platform so your progress counts towards the challenge. If in doubt, keep walking, support your teammates and have fun! Enjoy the sights and scenes of the virtual walk along the Italian coastline!

  1. Arrive at the finish line on Sunday 24 March.

After walking every day for 4 weeks, congratulate yourself, your team and your competitors. Because you’re at the finish line of the Walking Challenge! Stay tuned to see the results of the competition… where you or your team could be up for a prize!

This year’s challenge invites you to take 10,000 steps a day and virtually experience the gorgeous Italian coastline, uncovering more of its beauty as you record your steps on the Health at Work platform.
