It Just Got Easier to Track Your Miles and Earn Rewards!
Thanks to our friends at Royal Oak-based Marvel Apps, tracking your miles in the Mayor's 50 Miles in 50 Days Walking Challenge is easy when you use the free CARROT Wellness mobile app.
CARROT Wellness is a mobile health and wellness program that allows smartphone users to count their steps. Every 2000 steps equals one mile.
CARROT users earn one coin for each step they take. Walk 100,000 steps - or 50 miles - and you'll be eligible for a water bottle. (We'll be adding other awards during the challenge, too!)
Not sure where to walk? The user friendly app also has links to self-guided one-mile walking adventures. Get out and explore art, history, nature and Royal Oak's network of 50 parks.
The Mayor's 50 Miles in 50 Days Walking Challenge begins on April 15. Participants have until June 3 to walk 50 Miles to complete the challenge.
