What is Thrive Across America?
Thrive Across America is an online physical activity program where you travel from Maine to Hawaii, along a virtual route. As you record your personal physical activity minutes, you will travel across the U.S., win exciting prizes and support your DU team during our 8-week challenge.
Who can participate?
All active DU employees are eligible to participate. (Students are not eligible.) The first 200 individuals to register will receive a free glass water bottle! Whether you’re just starting out or an experienced exerciser, Thrive Across America gives you simple, motivating tools to track your progress and see results. With dozens of activities to choose from, you can increase activity and improve health no matter what your interests or ability.
How does it work?
Each time you record physical activity minutes you move along a virtual route that winds through the United States. Aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity, five days a week.
When does the program start?
- Monday, September 10: Registration & team formation begins
- Monday, September 24: Begin recording your activity (8 week competition begins)
- Sunday, October 7: All teams must be formed
- Sunday, November 18: Team competition ends (but you can keep logging activity through 9/23/13!)
How does the team competition work?
Team participation is optional—and a lot of fun. Each day you record 30 minutes or more of physical activity, you earn a Thrive Across America star for your team. The more stars your team earns, the higher the score. Read the Questions & Answers by clicking the link at the bottom of the page; then visit the Team page for more details after you register.
