It works—and it's a lot of fun! Losing weight as a team means you keep on-track and encourage each other to reach your weight loss goals! There’s also the excitement of prizes for reaching achievable goals. Not to mention the health benefits! Participants in HealthyWage's contests have lost hundreds of thousands of pounds in the last few years. Teams are forming now!
No, this Jackpot Challenge is available to St. Jude employees, GMP and St. Jude Graduate Students only.
The Jackpot is all about teams striving to lose 6% of their body weight. Each team puts their registration fee into a pot, and at the end of the challenge that money (less 25% administration fee and any uncollected fee installments) will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, unless your 6% weight loss was reached. Participants who have lost more than 6% will receive their registration fee back along with entry fees for prizes.
If you lose 6%: you get your $70 registration fee back and 1 entry into the drawing.
If you lose 8%: you get your $70 registration fee back and 2 entries into the drawing.
If you lose 10% or more: you get your $70 registration fee back and 3 entries into the drawing.
Prizes currently consist of: IPads, Apple products, Meal prep offerings and more!
This challenge runs from April 1, 2020 to June 24, 2020.
The registration fee is $70.
If you selected to pay in installments (as opposed to one single payment), your account will be charged every 30 days. Please note payments are processed exactly 30 days apart and will not occur on the same date of each month.
HealthyWage is available to residents of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Latin America (including Mexico), Australia, and most of Europe and Asia. If you are participating through an employer, such as Halliburton, you are generally allowed to participate regardless of your location in the world. Unless you are participating through your employer, you may not participate if you are a resident of North Korea, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Burma, Yemen, Afghanistan, Libya and Sudan.
The Jackpot Challenge is based on team support and motivation, which provides accountability and success. To make it lots of fun, each week, we provide you with tips and tricks to help you and your team stay on track. We also have fun games every few weeks!
You can sign up as an individual or be in a team up to nine members. We've found though that having a team is a great way to stay motivated. You can invite your co-workers to join your team. If you rather work on your weight loss journey on your own, that is an option as well. Living Well staff will work with you throughout the challenge to support you any way possible.
Don't worry, we've got someone for that! Our Chief Fun Officer will work with you to make sure you are on a complete team. Once you're signed up, email email@example.com and just ask for assistance. If you've got one or two others signed up with you, we'll also make sure you stay together! Teams will be locked and no changes will be allowed two weeks after the challenge start date (if you sign up later than that, your team will remain unlocked for a week), so make sure you let us know right away if you need help! You can find out more about the Team Formation Process here.
Yes, you must be registered and have your weight verified by April 15 to be in the challenge.
A team can be changed within the first two weeks of the challenge. After two weeks, teams are locked and your team can not be changed (exception: if you sign up later than two weeks into the challenge, your team will remain unlocked for a week).
Absolutely. You can participate in up to 10 challenges at the same time! So double-up, even triple-up to maximize your winnings for the same weight loss!
Yes, this is an employee only challenge.
Yes—twice: once at the beginning of the challenge (anytime on or after the start date) and once at the end (within two weeks before, or on, the end date).
NOTE - Final weigh-in verifications must be measured by 11:59 PM PT on the last day of your challenge.
It's super easy -- you have two options:
We take the average of each team member's weight loss percentage, rounded to the nearest tenth (for example 5.1743% would be rounded to 5.2%). To calculate your individual weight loss percentage, take the number of pounds you have lost divided by your starting weight.
If you still have an unverified member on your team a month after the start date you are stuck with them. So make sure you are aware of the status of your teammates by going to the teammate section on your dashboard and clicking the ‘i’ icon.
If someone on your team doesn't get a weigh-out, that's okay—we will count their weight loss as 0% for purposes of computing your team's average weight loss. But note that all members must get an initial weigh-in.
Your employment status will have no impact on your eligibility to earn your entry fee back, but you will no longer be eligible for the prizes awarded at the end of the challenge through drawings.
Yes. In order to encourage healthy weight loss, we only count weight loss up to 16.6% per person. Any individual weight loss beyond 16.59% does not count for the challenge. Note: it is OKAY to lose more than 16.6% (you won't be disqualified), but any extra weight you lose above 16.59% will not be counted toward your team's weight loss average for the challenge.
Ribbons are a fun way to keep track of your effort and achievement, and research shows that you're more likely to lose weight if you divide your goals into bite-size mini-goals. The ribbons take this concept to another level by making the mini-goals social (people can see when you earn a ribbon) and fun. You can earn ribbons for taking certain actions and for achieving certain milestones throughout the challenge. Ribbons are not required, but they are important because they improve your odds of success.
"Team" ribbons will also be awarded for teams achieving certain weight loss and challenge milestones together. For the purposes of team aggregate ribbon counts, team ribbons will only count one time toward the team total, even though they are awarded to each individual on the team. For example, a team of 5 may be awarded the 4% Weight Loss ribbon. Each individual on the team (5) will receive this ribbon and it will count toward their personal ribbon total, however only 1 ribbon will be counted in the team ribbon count (not 5).
No. But you can sign up if you've recently had your baby, if your doctor says it's okay.
Your challenge is suspended the minute you think you might be pregnant -- just let us know. You have 60 days after that to supply proof of pregnancy from your clinic/doctor. You may resume your challenge once you are cleared by your doctor to participate again.
Only with advanced doctor approval. Contact us to discuss this before signing up.
No! You and your teammates can live in different parts of the country or even the world! You can get weighed-in at different gyms and/or doctors.
No. You are under no obligation to any health club weigh-in station. While we encourage you to support our sponsors and partners, the weigh-ins are free and without obligation.
HealthyWage is committed to protecting the security of your personal information, including payment information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. For example, all participant data is collected and transmitted over secured connections using 256-bit encryption. All pages on the HealthyWage website are served over SSL. All payment data is handled following rigorous Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards set by VISA, MasterCard, and American Express. We process payments via a highly reputable third-party payment processor and never store your sensitive payment information on our own system.
Part of our job is to prevent you from giving up, so you can't quit -- there are absolutely no cancellations or refunds. HealthyWage will suspend your challenge if you are pregnant.
No. No one else will see your actual weight (not even your employer). Only your percentage weight loss will be visible to other users.
