Walktober is back and better than ever!

Participants may sign-up as an individual, but are encouraged to join a team of 4-10 other Walktober users for an added challenge. 

Your activity can be tracked using your Fitbit or Jawbone device, Apple Health App, and more! You also have the ability to enter your steps manually if using a fitness tracker not supported by Walktober. As you are accumulating steps/minutes, you will acquire leaves, which will allow you to earn points for both yourself and your team. At the end of the program, prizes will be awarded to the top 3 individuals and the top 3 teams. A weekly prize raffle will also be provided throughout the program.

Get the family involved!

All access members may invite their household members 13 years old and over to participate!

To accommodate larger groups, teams may be as large as 10 members


Additional Features:

  • Sole Mates- a friend feature that allows you to encourage and keep one another on track

  • The Walking Wall- an interactive message board to post your successes, photos, or read tips from the experts

  • Wellness tips (emailed daily or weekly based on your preference)

  • Over 250 healthy recipes

  • The mobile app to make syncing & tracking your steps even easier
