What is KP Walk!?
KP Walk! is a program based on scientific research that highlights the significant disease prevention and health-promoting benefits of consistent walking. Like KP’s Thrive Across America program, it’s an inspiring journey designed to help you move more and have fun as you visit fascinating places along virtual trails.
Who can participate?
Kaiser Permanente employees, physicians, dentists, and affiliates — including The Permanente Federation staff and staff of the Coalition of KP Unions and partner unions — can participate. Whether you’re a power walker, casual stroller, or just starting out, KP Walk! gives you simple, motivating tools to track your progress and see results.
How does it work?
Each time you record exercise minutes, you move along a virtual U.S. or international trail — there are five to choose from. So whether you’re traveling along the majestic Pacific Northwest Trail or the rugged Heysen Trail in Australia, getting active has never been so interesting and fun.
When does the program start?
KP Walk! launched in January 2011 and the program continues to be open for registration. Join over 30,000 KP employees that have already signed up for this rewarding program. You can start recording your minutes of walking as soon as you register.
Are there rewards?
You bet. KP Walk! includes a fun, inspiring reward and recognition system. Each time you reach walking minute milestones — 600, 1,200, 3,600, etc. — you’ll receive a reward or recognition courtesy of Healthy Workforce. Learn more on the Rewards page when you register.
