If you want to participate in the 2022 Step Challenge, simply sign up. You don't have to join a team to participate. You can create a team later if you want to or accept an invitation to a team if you receive one.
Encourage friends, colleagues and family to step by signing up as a team! You can join or create a team once you've joined the 2022 Step Challenge.
Each week of the challenge begins on Thursday and ends the following Wednesday through April 30.
How do I join and get started?
Which devices connect and sync?
MoveSpring connects to a variety of fitness tracking devices including Fitbit, Garmin, Withings and Apple Watch. View a full list of connectable devices.
Can I participate on my own, or do I have to join a team?
You can participate on your own, or you can create and/or join a team. Follow the directions to “Create a team” in the Team Leaderboard section in the MoveSpring app or the website to create your team. (To see the Team Leaderboard, you must be on a team. However, you can form a team of one, yourself, if you prefer not to be part of a team but want to see the Team Leaderboard.) Only teams of two or more people are eligible for team prizes.
Can I add my steps manually?
Yes. Connecting a device is the simplest way to track, of course, but MoveSpring also allows you to enter your steps manually if you forget your device or don’t have one. Find directions for manual entry.
Will you give out prizes?
Yes, we will give out weekly prizes along with final prizes at the end of the challenge.
