The Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center in the University of Delaware's College of Arts and Sciences is offering three categories of grant support this year.

Participants can choose to track either their walking minutes or number of steps and have the option to purchase a wireless Fitbit Zip step counter at a 25 percent discount over the average retail price of $60. 

Using a personalized online account, walkers can track their daily activity, invite co-workers to join a team, share favorite walking routes, view over 250 healthy recipes, and more.

The cost of the Walktober program alone is $25 Wellness Dollars. For those who would like to acquire a Fitbit Zip, the cost is $65 Wellness Dollars.

Faculty and staff who enjoy participating in both the fall and spring wellness challenges can save money by registering for Wellness Plus and receive both programs and a Fitbit Zip for $75 Wellness Dollars.

Registration is open now through Oct. 3. To learn more and register, visit the Employee Wellness website or call 831-8388.
