We want this challenge to be as accessible as possible! If you are unable to participate by stepping, feel free to convert your minutes of physical activity to steps at the rate of 1 second of exercise to 1 step. For example, 60 seconds of exercise is equal to 60 steps in this challenge. You can lift, roll, do guided exercise, or any other activities. Being active is all that’s important! If we can make this challenge even more accessible, please reach out to [email protected]. We’d love to connect with you, and learn how we can improve our programs! 🙂

However, the challenge is based off of the Workweek Hustle in the Fitbit app. It sends motivating messages and helps to remind you to keep moving! It’s also a fun way to compete on a team.
Each week, every person on the team with the most steps will win 100 Prize Points for the Prize Shop, and get access to redeem their Prize Points for the EXCLUSIVE prizes, just for Challenge participants.

Visit gogarrettcounty.com, across the top you’ll see PRIZE SHOP. Click there and start shopping!
Prize pick-up times are listed at the top of the screen when you visit the Prize Shop. It’s usually once a month, on a Thursday at the Garrett County Health Department. An email will be sent to you regarding specific pick-up times.
NOTE: The last prize pick-up of the year will be December 8, 2022.
You can have someone else pick-up your prize during prize pick-up days, but they will need to sign as a recipient. Email [email protected] if this is the case prior to the next prize pick-up day.
You meet Shelley that Thursday at the Health Department to sign a few forms and get your photo taken for social media!
Awww snap! You probably missed the deadline, we reached our limit before your application was submitted, or you did not pick up your Fitbit at one of the several times offered. Depending on demand we may offer the chance for a free Fitbit again, so stay informed by reading gogarrettcounty.com blogs.
