Go365® by Humana Announces Winners of National Step Tournament, Resulting in Over One Million Meals Donated to Feeding America

LOUISVILLE, Ky.  – On Wednesday, Jan. 23, leading health and well-being company, Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), announced in a press release the winners of its Go365® National Step Tournament – a health and wellness contest that focuses on improving the fitness of employees from companies across the country. The National Step Tournament is a step challenge in which employer groups with two or more Go365 members compete for the highest team average step count. All winning teams receive a donation to their local chapter of Feeding America in their name.

This year, the multi-round “knockout” competition resulted in millions of steps logged and led to over one million meals donated to Feeding America. 

The participating organizations competed by size, ranging from the “Small” division with 2-99 employees, to the “Jumbo” division with over 1,000 employees. Over the course of three rounds, teams with the highest average step counts moved on to the next round. 

As teams progressed from one round to the next, they each had donations made to their communities. The first place winners donated a total of 58,826 meals, second place- 38,826 meals and third place- 18,826 meals. In total, one hundred and seventy-two organizations had donations made to the communities where they operate.

“Motivation is so important for success, no matter what your goals are,” said Jeff Reid, senior vice president of Humana Wellness Solutions. “Through this program, we found competition and charity were both powerful motivators. And with each step taken, everybody won.” 

Participants could benefit, as well, through Points added to their Go365 account. Points were rewarded for being a part of the Challenge-related activity, as well as for logging daily step counts.
