Challenge runs September 27th-November 8th!

2022 Theme: “Physical Activity & the Dimensions of Health”

Rock your potential this fall!


“It’s no secret that 2022 has continued challenging year for most, and has been full of changes, anxieties and  finding a new normal. One thing that hasn’t changed is Fort HealthCare’s commitment to our communities’ health, and making sure that our communities and partners feel supported during this tumultuous time. Through this pandemic, we know that maintaining overall health is more important than ever, and that daily physical activity should be part of that plan.

Fort HealthCare is excited to present to you the annual Rock the Walk community exercise challenge. The challenge will take place from Tuesday, September 27th through Tuesday, November 8th, and can be done entirely physically distanced and virtually.

The goal of Fort HealthCare community challenges is to offer an opportunity to improve overall health and well-being by encouraging individuals to get moving, eat healthfully, and increase quality of life. For 2022, we’re taking our challenge goals a step further and will be including weekly information and different opportunities around the theme “Physical Activity & the Dimensions of Health”.

How to participate

Sign up for the challenge will open on Tuesday September 6th and will be available through Friday September 30th at 12:00pm.

How much is enough?

Experts recommend at least 150 minutes – that’s just over 20 minutes per day – of moderately intense physical activity each week. That’s the minimum amount of time that you need to log online in order to stay in the challenge and compete for great prizes!

Some participants continue with their existing workout routines, some just boost their current ones, and some people decide it’s time to begin! Whatever your current fitness level, you can participate doing something that you enjoy – swim, walk, paddle, bike, jog, run, weight lift, row, aerobics, gardening, the list goes on. Just keep track of your activity to stay in the game! We will also share an educational article and have you take a short survey each week to help you stay motivated and engaged.

Why participate?

Increasing your level of physical activity also helps pave the way for feeling great! Lose weight and gain muscle mass, keep your immune system strong, increase your metabolism; change your lifestyle habits to include starting and sticking with a regular exercise program; be a part of a healthy community, and inspire others to move more!

Weekly tasks

  • Logging minutes of exercise totaling at least 150 minutes per week
  • Reading the education
  • Taking a short survey

All tasks will open on Tuesdays and must be entered online/completed by Monday evenings by 11:59pm in order to be eligible for the weekly and grand prizes. Winners will be announced by November 11th.
