May Movers Step Challenge 2024

Men's Health / Women's Health / Workplace Health

 

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

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 Wednesday, 1 May 2024 and will end on Friday 31 May 2024.

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

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 healthandwellbeing@eani.org.uk(link sends e-mail) and we will help create a team for you.

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.

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!
