Promotions & Challenges

Register today for the Twin Cities Healthy Rivalry Challenge

It’s our biggest challenge yet, and we want all employees to participate!

Step up for your city!
Sure, you know Saint Paul is better than that “other one” just across the river. On our side, people embrace activity and rise to the challenge, right? Then let’s see it, Saint Paul. Get moving—and our city wins.

What’s it take to get in the game?

  • Assemble or join a team with other City of Saint Paul employees or participate on your own. Log in to and click on the Health & Wellness tab on the top right of your screen. Then, click Join the Challenge. (Some teams have already been created by department name – you can become a member of your department team or create your own).
  • Move it and prove it! Walk with a friend, try a new fitness class or take a bike ride with the family.
  • Between October 2 – 30, track all of your physical activity minutes to get to the top of the leaderboard. (You can use your synced personal fitness device or enter activity directly on the Track or Challenge pages of your My Health Rewards account. If your device is already synced on the Track page, all you need to do is sign up for the Rivalry and your minutes will be automatically added to the Challenge.)
  • Want to kick the rivalry into high gear? Share your activities on social media and tag them with #TwinCitiesHealthyRivalry.

What’s the goal?

The city with the highest average of minutes tracked will be declared the winner—and the winning city will receive a challenge trophy (and bragging rights). Plus, one participant from each city will win a Medica prize pack in a drawing at the end of the challenge.
