Global Corporate Challenge

20 May 2010 saw the start of the Global Corporate Challenge – a global corporate health initiative where participants aim to take 10,000 steps a day, for 16 weeks!

Yup, we have to take at least 10,000 steps a day!  When we enter our steps on the website they are then converted into Kilometers and added to the rest of my team’s total and assists us in making our virtual journey around the world.  The aim is to improve staff fitness, promote teamwork, foster a positive competitive spirit, be fun and support the workforce to be active, healthy and more productive.  A friend had taken part in a previous challenge so I found out about it, made a case to my boss and after a bit of too-ing and froo-ing about where the budget would come from, as it costs NZ$110 per person, I got the go-ahead to organise it and drum up a team….

Three teams of 7 later, I have 21 members of our team up for it… and now we are all obsessed about how many steps it takes to go to the cafe, the loo, the printer, etc!  So far I have managed to exceed the 10,000 steps a day so so far so good!
