Keep America Active Fitness Challenge

Keep America Active

Sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, the "Keep America Active" Fitness Challenge runs Monday, June 25 through Sunday, August 19. The "Keep America Active" Challenge is a District agency-wide eight-week online wellness competition that aims to encourage healthy behaviors and increase fitness among employees by virtually traveling across the country. 

Participants will travel from state to state each day without boarding a plane, hopping on a bus, or gassing up the car with this program. Participants can earn points and stars as they record exercise minutes or steps and two additional, optional health behaviors of their choice. Participants will take a fun quiz, learn why each attraction should be on their bucket list, and collect badges and souvenirs. Employees can join a team of up to four colleagues or participate as individuals.

Challenge Features:

  • Mapping tool to create and share walking, biking, or running routes near work or home
  • Ability to take pals along in a friendly team competition
  • 200+ healthy, delicious recipes
  • Mobile app for convenient logging


Registration for Keep America Active runs Monday, June 11 through Monday, July 2.
