Faculty and staff joined together to walk the distance to Ohio State’s away Big Ten football games, approximately 3 million steps, in the 7th annual Your Plan for Health (YP4H) Hit the Road with the Buckeyes team walking challenge.
As part of Ohio State’s commitment to providing a healthy workplace environment, the annual physical activity challenge supports faculty and staff as they start or continue their personal health journey.
More than 4,000 participants formed 750 teams across the state. In total, participants walked over 1.5 billion steps during the October 3 – November 20 challenge.
Teams of up to 10 benefits-eligible faculty/staff and their enrolled spouses/same-sex domestic partners tracked their steps and competed for prizes, including YP4H points towards earning Amazon gift cards and Ohio State-branded SKICKS sneakers.
Faculty and staff shared their challenge photos on social media. Check out some of their photos below and view the final team leaderboard.
YP4H is Ohio State’s preventive approach for providing faculty, staff and their enrolled spouses/same-sex domestic partners with the tools and resources for living a healthy life.
