A Journey As a Team Towards Health and Happiness

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”


Ever wonder what it’s like to walk 4,100 miles? This year has probably felt like that in some ways, but we’re not talking about a metaphor. Our agency actually walked 4,100 miles! Let me explain.

The year 2020 has presented a world of challenges: working from home, screen fatigue, social distancing, hardships—and the list goes on. As a way to encourage healthy living, promote happiness and work together to achieve goals remotely, the EPIC Creative team participated in a company-wide step challenge. Each week, we presented new step challenges that led the team to ultimately complete over 7,902,600 steps (or 4,100 miles!)

At EPIC, we’re always looking for ways to dig into the data, and this is no exception. We decided to spin this fun challenge into a virtual adventure. If we can’t actually hop on a plane and head on an excursion, the least we can do is pretend we’re stepping into a vacation, right? Let’s see where those steps took us …

So why did we do this? Healthier employees are happier employees, and a little friendly competition can never do us wrong. Step challenges are a great way to build an active and engaged team, while encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

Together as a team, we made it all the way to Stockholm, Sweden!

Well, what do you say … Can you beat us?
