May Movers EA Step Challenge
1 May, 2022 - 12:00 to 31 May, 2022 - 12:00


Would you like to move more in May? If the answer is yes then we have the perfect solution – our May Movers Step Challenge.

Leave Easter behind and look forward to what the summer has to offer - getting outside, staying active and more importantly connecting with each other.

To mark National Walking Month which takes place throughout the month of May we are encouraging you to get together as a team and take part in in our walking challenge. We will present you with a new theme each week and offer words of encouragement and motivational tips to help you and your team achieve your goals and have some fun along the way.

May Movers Step Challenge will begin on Sunday, 1 May 2022 and will last for 31 days.

Each team will be made up of 4 members from any department or school across the Education Authority.

The challenge will finish on a Sunday each week. Your Team Leader will then forward us the team total on a Tuesday by 12.00 noon at the latest.

Challenge yourself to be the best version of YOU! - Registration is easy

1. Choose your team leader and team name

2. Register your team name and list your team members here.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a casual stroller, a power walker or a marathon runner this challenge aims to inspire you to be more active, and connect with friends and colleagues.

So let’s all join together and make ‘May Movers’ fun for everyone.

If you are an individual looking to take part, just drop us an email to and we will help create a team for you. We recognise that this was a barrier during previous challenges.

The team with the most steps in total by the end of the 31 days AND the team with the most creative team name will all receive a Health and Wellbeing Goodie Bag, now if that’s not an incentive, what isJ

Take a look at some feedback from staff who took part in our step challenge last year:

  • “Encouraged me to engage with colleagues and make a real effort to get out and about. Loved the themes and locations for walks.”
  • “Friendly competition within school. Incentive for everyone to get outside and get active.”
  • “Motivating being accountable for my own steps. Enjoyed being part of a team.”
  • “Connecting people and encouraging exercise and work life balance.”



Remember, it’s not the winning it’s the taking part that counts!
