Click HERE for step entry instructions.   You may enter steps through Friday, August 20 at 5 p.m. EST. 

This is an 8-week physical activity challenge open to ALL members of the State of Montana Benefit Plan (State Plan). The challenge is for people of ALL fitness levels and incorporates all types of activity. Participants in the 8-week challenge will keep track of their daily steps and challenge themselves to do even better! This year our virtual walking path will have the "North American Nomad" theme, and we'll "visit" Canada and the United States. You can use any tracking method that works for you - step counting devices or apps or just self-reporting your minutes of activity. The Challenge is open to ALL members of the State of Montana health plan.

It’s FREE—There is no cost to participate!
It’s EASY— The step entry system will be online and accessible from anywhere, anytime.
It’s FUN—We’ve got more prizes, activities, and assistance than ever!
