The HBA Mid-Atlantic Region along with the Fit2Lead Affinity group is launching a 4-week fitness challenge.

• What? Form a team, pick a captain, and ask your team members to track their steps. Participants should track steps Monday through Sunday each week and then send weekly totals to the captain. The team captain will collate the team totals and we will track the teams' progress centrally.
Use whatever technology you have on hand to track your activity; examples include the health app on your iPhone, or Fitbit or pedometer—whatever is easiest for you. All steps/activities count; all day, all night, weekends, etc. You can convert activity to steps using an activity converter, such as:

Benefits of the challenge include camaraderie, networking and the promotion of physical and mental health.

• Who can join? This activity is geared to current Mid-Atlantic HBA members. There is no charge to participate.
• How do you join? Form a team from your chapter or volunteer groups. Have team members register here. Name a team captain to collate your steps. Choose a team name.
• When? The Challenge begins on Monday, May 25th and ends Sunday, June 21st.
• Why form a team? It’s fun! And healthy! And it’s a way to build connections.
