StepsToWELL-Being: National Senior Games Challenge!
March 3, 2021
It’s time to get ready for NSGA’s third virtual, physical activity competition that features YOU and others from your state competing for bragging rights while keeping yourself fit! The StepsToWELL-Being Challenge allows you to join a team and/or participate individually. In addition, the names of all participants are eligible for selection from a prize drawing every Friday. For a motivational boost, try the Wellness Score feature to explore activities that accumulate wellness points.
The National Senior Games StepsToWELL-Being Challenge starts March 15 and runs through April 12. If you have already participated, you are in the system and ready to log in to enter your data. Participants record various types of physical activity (that the software converts to steps) with the goal of obtaining the highest number of average steps for state Senior Game teams/partner organizations and/or yourself. Registration is now open, and anyone any age can join at no cost, not just senior games athletes.

From March 15- April 12, login to the StepsToWELL-Being Challenge, choose from a variety of physical activities, enter the number of minutes it took to complete your activity and it will be converted into steps. You can also upload steps from your fitness-tracking device. Lots of things count as physical activity — even things you have to do anyway! Gardening, housework, and even shopping are all great ways to get moving and can be converted into steps. Sign up today!
