FAQs

A step challenge is a challenge to take on a certain amount of steps every day. In this case, the challenge is to take on either 5,000 steps a day or 10,000 steps a day for the whole month of October.

You can track your steps through an app called MoveSpring. After registration, you'll receive an email with a link and code to sign up for our challenge through MoveSpring. MoveSpring will pull your step data from popular fitness tracking devices like Apple Health, Google Fit, Fitbit, Garmin, etc. Most phones use an accelerometer to measure steps and distance traveled so if you keep your phone with you, you don’t need to purchase a tracker or pedometer to participate. You must be 18 years or older to use the MoveSpring app.

After you register, you'll receive a link to download MoveSpring and the code to sign up for our challenge. The information to download MoveSpring will also appear in your Panda Nation Center. You must be 18 years or older to use the MoveSpring app.

There is no fundraising requirement to participate, but there is a one-time registration fee of $30 . Fundraising is encouraged and you can receive a Species Step Challenge shirt if you raise $100 or more.

Teammates can sign up for different step challenge distances, however the MoveSpring app experience will be slightly different for participants who choose 5,000 steps a day than those who choose 10,000 steps a day. Participants will only be able to chat with and view leaderboards in the MoveSpring app of people in the same challenge as them. If you would like to interact with team members in the MoveSpring app, we recommend all teammates sign up for the same step distance.
