  • How are the weekly winners determined?
    • The winners are determined by the total number of participants and their respective step counts. Participants are grouped into sections based on their weekly step rankings. For instance, if we’re awarding only the first place in each section:
    • The 1st place winner will be the participant with the highest number of steps for that week.
    • The next winner will be the participant ranked at the 5th position in step counts.
    • Following that, the winner from the next section will be the one ranked 10th in steps.
    • Lastly, the winner from the final section will be the participant placed 15th in the weekly step rankings.”
    • This system ensures a fair distribution of prizes across different activity levels.

    • We will be awarding the overall top stepper an additional $60 prize when they complete all four weeks of the challenge.
