Let's Get Moving, NYC!
This fall, we invite you and your agency to join us for STEPtember - a fun month-long walking challenge where thousands of city employees will step our way across NYC! Each week, we’ll journey to a new borough together – follow along virtually or get bonus steps for making the journey in person.
WorkWell NYC will be highlighting points of interest in each borough along the way to get your steps in! Take photos at locations you visit to prove you stepped it up and show your borough pride!
As a WorkWell NYC Ambassador, you can help spread the word about STEPtember and promote the challenge at your agency! By encouraging your co-workers to sign up for STEPtember, you will be helping to build a healthier, friendlier and more energetic workforce.
This page contains everything you need to know to engage your agency in STEPtember. See below for details and promotional materials, and may the best agency win!
