Physical Activity

You can form teams or individual participants can compete in a web-based competition tracking the number of "steps" achieved each week. Each week team members will report their step count in an effort to move their team up the challenge leader board. We have two Team Step Challenge categories: 

1. 2019 Team Steps Challenge for 10 Members or Less

2. 2019 Team Steps Challenge for 11 Members or More

Weight Loss

In the OYOH Weight Loss challenge, participants can have unlimited number of people on a team. This challenge calculates the average number of pounds lost per person for a team. Participants can compete individually in the open competition as well.

Sign up by yourself or with a team and create an online profile! For Teams in your challenge: Captains sign up first and add their team members following the instructions online. Then, every team member signs up and completes the profile page. If there is an existing team you want to join, you can do that through the website also
