Up for the challenge?

Your Alcatraz to New York adventure

Alcatraz to New York is an all-American, team vs. team pedometer workplace challenge that takes you on a once-in-a-lifetime road trip across the grand old US of A!

As you and your teammates log steps each day, you’ll uncover North America’s most talked about icons. You’ll get your thrills and spills with the daredevils of Niagara Falls, find your feet as a Nashville country music star, uncover the history of the Hollywood sign, and get swept away on a trip to the quirky roadside attractions of Route 66.
 
Before you know it, you’ll be hooping and hollering with the city slickers of the Big Apple.

Get ready to boost your activity in the land of opportunity!

So, here's how it works...

The 10,000 Steps USA workplace challenge invites you and your fellow staff members to record your all-day pedometer steps and physical activity (optional) for 10 weeks.

  • First, you register for your challenge. Your Team Captain or Coordinator will organise you into teams.
  • Then we equip you with a G-Sensor Accelerometer Pedometer which you wear on your waistband. This counts your daily steps.
  • Each day, you and your teammates log in to your personal homepage on the website and enter your step count.
  • As steps are logged, your team progresses across the virtual challenge map reaching selected locations along the way. With a click of the mouse, you can view photos and facts on each exciting destination and even catch up on some health and walking tips.
  • You and your teammates can view your own team and your favourite teams on the challenge map.
  • You can even see who’s topping the charts on your virtual workplace Leaderboard.
     

Move more, sit less...

Each morning, many of us wake from an 8-hour lie down, only to prepare for an 8-hour sit down! With this in mind, we designed a 10,000 steps workplace pedometer challenge that gives you everything you need to get up out of that desk chair, move more and sit less. We’ll give you access to personal tracking tools, virtual milestone medals, mini-activity challenges and walking tips that will engage, motivate, reward your participation and ensure you get a real sense of achievement – not to mention the health benefits – from your 10,000 Steps USA challenge.
