When we decided to host the Walk the Rock Walking Challenge I was a little apprehensive to structure the event as a competition. I was fearful that the contest would overshadow the original intention, which is simply to promote health. By framing this event as a competition there was the potential to create an environment that could pressure and cause animosity amongst team members rather than provide support…
Two weeks in and I am thrilled to report you all have exceeded my expectations! There seems to be only love and support surrounding this community of participants and I am so thankful you all have approached this the way I had hoped you all would.
I have seen team members out walking together and supporting their team member’s individual goals, regardless of their team totals. One of my favorite accounts from this past week was from a team captain who informed me that he had chosen a team by selecting members he felt could use the support rather than selecting members that would ensure him a win. This is exactly what this challenge is all about, support and inspiration!
Continue to be a positive role model for yourselves, your teammates and our community!
