Purpose of the Walking Challenge


Through various content types and actionable instruction—including articles, fun “Myth or Fact” quiz flows, and action to-do’s—the user gains knowledge covering the tremendous benefits of daily activity. This Challenge inspires the user to consistently incorporate regular activity (in the form of walking or any other moderately intense activity) into their regular life.
