Employee Wellness & Engagement
Walk the distance (2200 miles) of the Appalachian Trail, either individually or with a group. Your employees and co-workers will enjoy the beauty and history of this trail through snapshots and trail information, helping to create real lifestyle change.
Walk the Distance will automatically read from Health App (iPhone) or Google Fit (Android) and progress walkers virtually along the Appalachian Trail. Walkers work hard to reach "checkpoints" along the route and to stay ahead of their coworkers! Employees can walk as individuals, in small teams of 4 or 5, or in larger groups of 10 or more. Breaking up into teams creates a more manageable timeline and encourages teamwork with a little friendly competition. Larger groups work well for competition between offices or locations. Whether part of a group or not, all team members will be able to view their progress as a team and as an individual walker.
"Walk the Distance was an extremely successful program for our organization. During a time when we were not able to be together in person, Walk the Distance allowed us to stay connected and motivated right from our phones and helped us donate $28,000 back to our local communities. John was extremely easy to work with and he communicated everything very well."
