Eat Hard, STEP Harder with the Strive to Thrive STEPS Challenge!


This Thanksgiving, set your goals and track your progress. After the turkey settles, reconnect with your daily activities that keep you energized and motivated with the Strive to Thrive app! Gathering with friends and family can be uplifting in so many ways – so can being mentally and physically active.  

Meditation and Mindfulness 

Need some peace and quiet to digest that turkey? SNA has partnered with Lee Papa to offer meditation and mindfulness bonus activities for the  Strive to Thrive STEPS challenges. Put on your headset, find a quiet location that suits you best and use any or all of the meditation modules in the Challenge app to go through the 7-minute meditation sessions. During any active Challenge period, you will automatically receive 500 bonus steps for each meditation session you complete (limit of one bonus grant per session a day). 

STEPS Challenge Prizes

Who doesn’t like winning prizes? Those that participate in the SNA Strive to Thrive STEPS challenges and reach or surpass an official SNA STEPS challenge goal will be entered into a drawing to win these prizes: 

  • One (1) winner will receive the grand prize: a special wellness themed prize that will include a $150 gift card!
  • Three (3) other prizes will be given to one random winner based on each of the step goal levels.
