Walk Weingarten was a challenge utilizing FitBits to encourage associates to increase their daily activity levels. The challenge started on February 1st, to see as how quickly as a Company we can walk the distance to all of our eleven regional offices in an east-to-west coast route. The route mapped was 5,000 miles, and it took us approximately 11,000,000 steps to complete in 14 days!
Any associate with a FitBit was invited to participate and 113 associates signed up for the challenge. A new FitBit Flex (wristband) or FitBit One (clip on) was made available at a discounted price to those who did not have a pedometer already. We were so excited to see how fast we were able to achieve our goal of 5,000 miles. Weingarten for go abroad for our next walking challenge!
