2016 Walk for Wellness

FHLBNY Employees Participate in the
First Annual “Walk for Wellness Challenge"

During the month of October, the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (“FHLBNY”) offered its employees a chance to go toe-to-toe with their colleagues in the first annual “Walk for Wellness Challenge”. This program, a team competition in which the FHLBNY gave employees pedometers to track their steps, was designed to help employees step out of their comfort zone and step up into wellness. More than 110 employees – competing as part of 11 teams – participated in the five-week Challenge, and in that time, employees walked more than 37 million steps – no small feat for their feet!

The teams competed for prizes and bragging rights – not only for the most steps taken, but also the most creative name. And there were plenty, such as Hot Steppers, Walking Warriors, Holy Walkamoles and League of Legs. This creativity brought people together, inspired others and motivated employees to share wellness tips amongst each other. Teams further encouraged each other with inventive tactics to increase their steps through living room dance parties, dining room table strolls, hiking, lunchtime networking walks, and participation in various races.

Their creativity and encouragement paired with some good old fashioned competition pressed employees toward team work, wellness and collaboration.
