Go365 by Humana Announces Winners of Second Annual National Step Challenge, Resulting in 10.6 Billion Steps Taken and One Million Meals Donated to Feeding America

Originally Published by Humana

Today, leading health and well-being company, Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), announced the winners of its Go365 National Step Challenge – a health and wellness contest that focuses on improving the fitness of employees from companies across the country. The National Step Challenge is a competition in which employer groups with two or more Go365 members compete for the highest team average step count. All winning teams receive a donation to their local member food bank of Feeding America® in their name.

The Challenge featured 2,939 competing organizations that collectively logged 10.6 B steps leading to the equivalent of one million meals* donated to Feeding America. The participants competed based on a team average daily step count. The organizations competed by team size, ranging from the “Small” division with 2-10 members, to the “Jumbo” division with over 100 members.

The first place winners donated 70,000 meals, second place: 50,000 meals, third place: 30,000 meals and fourth place: 10,000 meals. In total, fifty-two organizations had donations made to the communities where they operate.

“Humana is committed to improving the health of the communities we serve and we’re excited to see our clients achieving their best health,” said Jeff Reid, senior vice president of Humana Wellness Solutions. “Through this program, we’re fighting food insecurity and with each step taken, everybody won.”

Food insecurity, defined as the lack of access to enough nutritionally adequate foods to live an active, healthy life, contributes to poor health, lower productivity and higher medical costs. Feeding America supports programs that prevent food waste and improve food security.

Participants could benefit as well through Points added to their Go365 account. Points were awarded for being a part of the Challenge-related activity, as well as for logging daily step counts. [SOURCE]
