Being Well Is Better Together! Ask your department, coworkers, friends, or family to join you for a wellness challenge! All of the challenges can be done as a team. Just have each teammate use an individual tracker and participate together. Some trackers are even specifically designed for teams. Reach out to us at challeng@iu.edu if we can be of any assistance!

Did you complete a challenge? Fill out the challenge feedback survey to receive your incentive!

    Starting a Team — Easy as 1-2-3!

    1. Download and print a team tracker or some individual trackers.
    2. Post the tracker(s) in a common area (like a breakroom or on your door).
    3. Invite people to join your team and track their progress with you.

    How to Be a GREAT Team Leader

    1. Choose a challenge that everyone can participate in, if they want.
    2. Have fun!
    3. Understand that everyone has their own idea of what’s fun! If you choose to plan any team meetings or activities, get feedback from your teammates first.

    Ideas for Team Leaders

    (Remember, ask teammates if they want to do these first!)

    • Update teammates with weekly results in a fun email.
    • Host a healthy pitch-in lunch to celebrate the beginning or end of the challenge. (You can find Healthy IU-approved recipes here.)
    • Recognize teammate accomplishments.
