Hi there Captains and Participants, 
We're excited to see the benefits of all the extra exercise this winter for you and your family, friends, and communities. This article will help you navigate the next couple weeks of this challenge. 

You may have noticed that this year, we've decided to temporarily change the name of the event to the NWTRPA Walking Challenge. You can read more about this change here


LAST CHANCE: January Photo Contest Submissions
We will be selecting January Photo Contest Winners this week! Monday, January 31, 2022 is your last chance to upload, email, or tag us in photos that you think ought to win a prize for the following categories: 

  • Dogs Walk! 
  • Intergenerational Connections
  • Frosty Faces
  • Beautiful Places
  • Walking Challenge Stories
  • Walking Challenge Short Video (20s or less)

Activity Logging Update: 

As you know, each week we draw prizes for those who have logged activity throughout the previous week. But don't worry- we know that some teams log their time differently. Any team who has activity logged, will have all of their participants eligible! 

Teams are entered for the Weekly Winners draw each Monday for the previous week. You can check out who won in our Weekly Winners newspost. 

This year, there is no time limit for captains and participants to enter their time. Enter it whenever you can- just remember that times for the previous week need to be in by Monday morning in order to count for prizes. 


Prizes and Contests:

This week, we want to draw your attention to this year's Walking Challenge Champions' Package! This is a way for us to recognize every single participant who works with their team to complete the challenge. Every successful participant will receive a certificate of completion and a link to AMAZING deals and discounts from generous NWT businesses and organizations. 


Website Update: 
Some participants have had a hard time logging activity. We've fixed many issues, but are hearing that some of you are still receiving the error code: INVALID TEAM ID. 

** Make sure that if you're receiving these error codes, you fill out the help form in order for us to get it fixed for you. 

The web developer company is still working to find the root cause of this issue, but they have thankfully found a way to fix individuals' accounts.


Website Features:
Team Walks: Did you know that you can schedule team walks for your team?? This can be found on your website dashboard. It can be used to have everyone walk together in person (when CPHO restrictions allow), or schedule for everyone to walk at the same time at their own home! You can interact with the team walks, and then message your team about it later right from the team page! 

See you soon, take care of yourself, and enjoy your weekend.
