Walking Works Employee Challenge
What is WalkingWorks?
As part of the City's wellness program, the “WalkingWorks” challenge encourages employees to get and stay active! Prizes were awarded weekly through random drawings. Our top 3 teams each one prizes; as well as our Golden Sneaker award for the department with the most participation.
