To register for ChallengeRunner and to join the challenge click here.

The 21 Days of Winter Wellness Challenge encourages participants to become more aware of the several pillars of wellness that contribute to overall health! To receive credit, participants must log into ChallengeRunner and check which activities they completed. While it is recommended that participants log at least one activity a day, you have up to three days post-challenge to log any remaining data. This is intended to be a fun, educational, and engaging experience for you and your coworkers! To that end, please check off an activity only if you completed it within the challenge time period starting on 2/4. Proof of completion for activities is not required, so please play on your honor!

At the end of the challenge, the department or school with the highest percentage of participants completing the most activities will receive a prize package of delicious, nutrient-dense snacks for their breakroom... and bragging rights!

In addition, every participant who records a minimum of 15 activities will receive a participation certificate.


Use the website to get registered, then you can track progress through the app or website.
