Join U of U Health’s May Walking Challenge to support Utah’s Food Bank

Join U of U Health's commitment to support our community and join the 50K in May Walking Challenge.

Fighting hunger has never been so easy … or so healthy. Join U of U Health’s commitment to support our community and join the 50K in May Walking Challenge! Register through April 30 by donating $31, one dollar for each day in May, and help hungry families supported by the Utah Food Bank. You’ll feel great doing it!

Walking 50K is easier than you may think. May has 31 days and if participants walk just one mile each day, they’ll reach the 50K goal at the end of the month.


This challenge can count towards U employees WellU and WellnessNOW programs! Within 48 hours of registration, participants will receive instructions to sync a device (Apple Watch, Fitbit, etc.) to our Walker Tracker app for a customized virtual walking route from campus to the Utah Food Bank.

Registrations and donations must be received no later than April 30 to count towards this U of U Health goal. Participants get team merchandise that can be picked up on April 30. Pick-up details will be sent to all participants in the post-registration email. That email will also include information on how to properly track the challenge as part of the WellU and WellnessNOW employee programs.

Walk, run, bike or hike to participate!

This is a “fun walk” and is not timed or scored, so the possibilities are endless. One of our main goals is for us to get out and moving at least a mile a day! Starting May 1 and show us where you’re walking! Post a pic and tag #50KinMay. Include your furry friends too! Pets don’t need to donate to participate but extra donations are always welcome!

Family members can also join at an additional $31 donation for each member. They too will get the awesome U of U Health swag!

Note: Walker Tracker can only be used for current University employees. By donating, employees are not obligated to participate in the wellness challenge.
