The STRONG Challenge

Five weeks. Hundreds of teammates. For 20 minutes a day, five days a week, we’ll experiment with challenges and rhythms designed to open us up to a purpose-driven life that is STRONG. Take the Challenge, have some fun, and discover what it means to be STRONG.

Having a prominent place in the home to post your goals to see every day and track your progress will be key in these first days.
