Step into a new challenge and help end hunger in local communities

posted by Brent Brown on August 24, 2018 Go 365 National Step Tournament

A new steps challenge is set to take a bite out of hunger in local communities.

With each and every step, participants in the Go365 National Step Tournament 2018 can do their part to end food insecurity. One million meals, divided across winning teams, will be donated to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, in the name of the winning teams’ respective companies.

The Go365 National Step Tournament is a step challenge in which all commercial groups of two or more eligible Go365 members can compete against each other for the highest team average step count. Participants can do some good for their communities through the donation to Feeding America while also earning all-important bragging rights.

How does it work?

Companies compete against other similarly sized groups (or divisions) through a series of three individual challenge rounds counting the highest average step count per day. Round 1 will consist of divisional winners from four regions: East, West, Midwest and South.

The breakdown for enrollment periods and tournament dates is as follows:
