Frequently Asked Questions


  • How do I track my progress? Write down the steps from your pedometer or app at the end of each day. Submit your weekly entries on the myWellness website by 9 am Tuesday morning for the previous week.

  • Where do I get a pedometer? You may participate using your own pedometer or mobile app. If you need a pedometer, you may purchase or payroll deduct one for $10 at the MMC Gift Shop beginning March 31st and only while limited supplies last. 

  • What kind of pedometer is it?  The ones available at the gift shop are the highly-rated Omron HJ-321Tri Axis Digital Pedometer.

  • When does the week start and end? Weeks are identified as beginning at 12:01 am on Monday morning and ending at 11:59 pm the following Sunday.

  • How does my spouse sign up?  Registrations must be completed online for spouses who wish to participate.  All rules and prizes apply to spousal participation as well.

  • What if I miss a week of the challenge?  You can participate in as few or as many weeks as you like.  Just remember, you don’t qualify for grand prize drawings unless you participate all six weeks.

  • What if I don’t have access to a computer?  You can access the myWellness website from home.  There are also computers that can be accessed in the MCHC library and in the Technology Learning Center (TLC) across from the cafeteria at MMC.  

  • I can’t walk 10,000 steps a day; can I still participate?  We encourage everyone to participate and challenge you to just get moving according to your fitness level and ability. There are prize options that are not based on the number of steps you take.
