  • Activity performed for less than the 2-hour requirement should still be reported and will be counted towards cumulative totals
  • Reported activities should be performed outside of your normal work schedule (either before or after work, or during lunch breaks)
  • Don't feel left out!  Activities and healthy behaviors achieved during vacation should absolutely be included.
  • Logs MUST be submitted by the following Monday by 3pm (EST) to be eligible for that weekly prize.
  • IMPORTANT:  Once the log is completed and closed for that week, we cannot go back to adjust it so be sure to double-check you are inputting points for the appropriate week before completing and submitting your activity log each week.
