Every single team that reaches or exceeds a team average of one million steps (or 300,000 steps for our 30 day step challenges) at the end of their Challenge wins! The prize pot, which is the money collected from participants at the start of the Step Challenge (less 25% administration fee and any uncollected fee installments), will be split evenly among all members of winning teams.
If more than 75% of participating teams are successful, HealthyWage guarantees all successful participants will receive at least their entry fee back.
Teams are required. For details about team formation or for assistance with completing your team, please see the HealthyWage Step Challenge FAQs.
You can track your steps automatically (with certain phone apps and devices), or enter your steps manually using a non-supported device (but you may be asked to provide proof -- see "Manual Entries and Proof of Steps" below). If you are manually adding steps, the steps need to be added within one day of stepping. See "How do I track my steps?" in our FAQs.
Periodically, HealthyWage will ask certain participants to provide proof of the steps they reported for one or more days in the challenge. See Step Audits for complete details.
Participants that join more than one concurrent step challenge use their same daily step count for each challenge. Therefore, the daily goal is 10,000 steps per day regardless of if you are participating in 1, 2, 3 or more step challenges at the same time.
The green, yellow and red challenge success indicators are meant to be used as a guide. The indicators are an estimate of progress and success and not the final results. No success indicators are final until the challenge has ended and results have been calculated.
The team members of each winning team will receive a payment for an equal share of the pot, split among all members of winning teams.
Unless otherwise stated, the HealthyWage Step Challenges are available only to healthy people in the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK. Void where prohibited. All participants should have prior doctor's approval before starting any fitness program. You are not allowed to participate if: you are pregnant, under the age of 18, have any medical conditions that prevent you from walking or being active, have a doctor's recommendation not to exercise or any disability preventing you from physical activity.
HealthyWage will only issue refunds before the start date of the challenge or in cases where medical issues or pregnancy prevent you from continuing the program.
