Team Registration Now Open!

The City-Wide Walking Challenge will be held this year from 8:00 AM on April 6th until 5:00 PM on May 6th.

How it Works:
Gather your co-workers and create a walking team - between 2 and 8 people.

  • There will be 2 divisions: Field and Desk. Decide which division your team belongs - Field is for those that are up and about for most of their job; Desk is for those who spend most of their job at a desk.  Have people in each?  Choose the division that the majority of your team members are in.
  • Each participant must submit an entry fee donation of $5.  Deliver your team entry fees to Nikki Crisp in Finance – 100% of the proceeds go directly to the American Heart Association.
  • To sign up, submit your team information (team name, leader, Field or Desk division, team member names and employee numbers, and how many pedometers you need) here:  www.surveymonkey.com/s/inBalance_Walking_Challenge_Signup.
-  Not sure what your employee number is?  Find out on CityShare.

  • Track your steps any way you choose - cell phones, Fitbits, pedometers - all devices apply.  inBalance pedometers are available upon request.
-  All steps count- walking, running, weekday, weekend, at work, at home. (FYI: 2,000 steps = 1 mile).   

-  Just enter your name and employee number (the same way it was submitted when you signed up) and the number of steps you took from the last time you logged your steps.  

New!
This year the City of Springfield will also be competing against other local businesses for the largest average of steps taken!  This is our chance to take bragging rights and be the first recipients of the highly coveted Traveling Trophy!
