Walk to Earn Thirty Five Dollars

Have you heard of the National Steps Challenge? I think this may not be something new to you. On the streets, you can see people wearing a black, blue or red color band on their wrist. That is a step tracker issued by the Health Promotion Board.

I have met the Tier 1 criteria and have redeemed my $5 dollars NTUC voucher. In order to earn all the vouchers which total up to S$35 dollars, you need to earn 7200 points. The maximum points you can earn a day is 60 points.

Assuming I am able to hit 60 points every day,

(7200 – 1695)/60 = 91.75 = 92 days.

That will take me another 92 days to hit the maximum points. With the promotion ending in 28 February 2017, that is no longer possible for me to fulfill the 7200 points.

  1. I started this from the first day of the steps challenge from 1 Oct 16 onwards. It is a pity you started late but still better than never :) I didn’t redeem the hpb trackers as I hear from my friends that its battery life is not as good as the commercial fitness trackers like Fitbit.

    For myself, I am left with the last 3 tiers and should be able to complete redeeming the vouchers. Indeed uniquely Singapore here to get incentives for being active,haha.
