AMI Walk Challenge

  • Marketing

The American Heart Association will host their virtual Heart Walk on Saturday, May 22nd. AMI is a corporate sponsor and Dr. David Kenny is the Chairperson for this year’s event.

In an effort to raise funds for the American Heart Association, we will host the AMI Walk Challenge! Throughout the month of May we are encouraging our physicians and staff to Join Team AMI and get your steps in.

The AMI Walk Challenge will run from May 1 – May 28th. Here is how it will work:

  • Register to join Team AMI on the American Heart Association website – Click here to register and create your profile. (Follow these steps after clicking the link above).
    • Help us raise funds by sharing your profile page with your family and friends and encourage them to sponsor you for the AMI Walk Challenge.
    • Once you finish the registration and donation process a popup will appear to connect your fundraiser to Facebook.
    • You can also access various sharing options (Facebook, Twitter or Email) and track your fundraising progress on your main dashboard page.
  • Once you have registered, email Emily Lingo at elingo@aminj.com that you registered and what office you work out of. We will send an AMI pedometer to you via interoffice mail. You can use this pedometer to keep track of your steps starting, Saturday, May 1st thru Friday, May 28th.
  • At the end of day on Friday, May 28th, all participates will take a picture of their pedometer showing the number of steps completed and send to elingo@aminj.com.

There are 2 ways you can win the AMI Walk Challenge:

  1. Most Steps: the top three (3) participants with the most steps completed by end of day on May 28th will win a bag of AMI work-out swag along with a $25 Visa gift card.
  2. Most Funds: the participant who raises the most funds on the Team AMI page will win your choice of a Fitbit Versa 2 or Apple Watch 3.

Tracking Your Steps

  • We are sending pedometers to those who register, but if you already have a pedometer, or any type of step tracking device, you can use your own. 
  • Please send your completed steps to Emily Lingo at elingo@aminj.com each Monday morning so that we can publish the results weekly.

Throughout the AMI Walk Challenge, we want to bring as much awareness as possible about the American Heart Association’s mission. So be sure to tag AMI on social media when posting updates about your steps and encourage others to support your efforts!

So dust off your sneakers and get ready for the AMI Walk Challenge!
