Walking Challenge

The edHEALTH Walking Challenge 2021

Wellesley College and edHEALTH are proud to invite you to take part in the Walking Challenge for all benefits eligible employees with 20 area colleges. Join the fun, enter raffles to win virtual prizes, and take steps toward your great well-being!


Team employees strive for 10,000 steps per day. We’ll send tips for meeting and exceeding this goal. Despite it being a very challenging time last year, over 450 employees participated in the event, walking a total of almost 108 million steps over the four-week competition. 


  • Challenge Starts: Monday, June 7
  • Challenge Ends: Sunday, July 4

The more you step, the more chances you have to win.


Conratulations to our Week 1 challenge winners:


  • Inspired WInner: Louise Darling
  • Inspired & Empowered Winner: Jennnie Pyers
  • Inspire, Empowered & Supercharged Winner: Karen Geromini


Easy Tracking
Participants connect their fitness tracker or device app to the Limeade app via Harvard Pilgrim’s wellness account. All participating schools and employees are eligible, regardless of health plan. We’ll send instructions in advance.

Boston College won last year’s Annual edHEALTH “Walk This Way” Challenge. Which member school will win this year? Although we don’t know, we do know that everyone will have fun participating, competing with others, and being active.
