Employee Wellness is encouraging UNM workers to step up their fitness.

Healthywage is teaming up with the university again to bring UNM’s Step Challenge. It’s a 60-day activity challenge where participants who increase their average individual steps by 25 percent or more are entered to win. Last year, the winnings grew to more than $6,000. 

The challenge starts on Sept. 11 and ends Nov. 9. Register online for $30/month for two months ($60). Gather coworkers, friends, and family together and join the step challenge. Register by Friday, Sept. 7 to be entered to win a Fitbit Flex 2.

Employee Wellness has also added fitness classes, led by Lauren Lewis. Join her on Thursdays from 12 – 1 p.m., during the challenge, to help you increase your steps. Classes are an extra $60, and are tuition remission eligible. Scan and email form to wellness@unm.edu or fax it to 277-2278.
