A team member can get a maximum of 5 points a day and 20 points total, now through April 13.

Take a Ride: New in 2019, team members can earn their 10K Bike Stroll credit any Thursday night between now and April 13 at one of Redemptive's Trample Rides. Head to Redemptive Cycles for the weekly Downtown Trample, a free 10 (ish)-mile socially-paced group ride around the city. Group meets Thursdays at 6 p.m. at Redemptive Cycles (1305 2nd Avenue N.), and rolls out at 6:30 p.m. Any participation after a team member's first Trample Ride will count toward philanthropy points.

FAQs

Q: What if I’m not an athlete?
A: We want you! Whether you’re a couch potato, weekend warrior or regular competitor, you’re invited! There are several events that employees can join in order to earn points for our team, regardless of your athletic ability. Be sure to mark your interest in the 1-mile Fitness Walk, 5K Run, 10K Bike Stroll and Jump Rope Contest (all non-competitive events) when you register and you’ll be automatically added to the roster.
