your
ADVENTURE
awaits

Proven by many of New Zealand's and Australia's largest companies to generate an immediate impact on team spirit and morale, the Team Challenge is a unique online activity challenge that uses a personalised and entertaining approach that employees love, resulting in high uptake that creates a real buzz in your workforce.

Led by ASICS Ambassadors Ardie Savea, Ameliaranne Ekenasio, and Kane Williamson, employees form teams, build their avatars and track their activity and other healthy behaviours in the real world to experience a virtual tourism adventure from Madagascar to Machu Picchu, establishing healthy habits that have a real impact on how they feel and perform every day.

Many of our clients use it as highly visible annual event that drives awareness and usage of other wellness offerings so whether you are looking for an energizing way to kick start your wellbeing program or revitalize it, if you have 50 staff or 5000, contact us today

"Staff members are commenting to me that this initiative has been more successful than anything they have seen before. People are out walking at lunch time, the carpark is empty in the morning with people cycling and walking to work. The soft drink dispenser has gone and the lunches being eaten are looking very healthy."

-Anne, HR Manager NZ Blood Service

Your people will love the experience

Once registered, each participant personalises their experience by building their own unique avatar. This creates a real buzz in the workplace as entrants build and compare avatars and leads to increased participation of employees who often do not take part in wellness initiatives.

Enhancing Team Spiri

To complete the course, participants enter their daily steps & other activity into the challenge site or app. As it's a team event, it's the team average points that moves teams around the course so everyone can have different levels of activity but by working together, easily achieve the team goal.

Fun & Engaging

When teams reach each destination, they are rewarded with a video of their unique avatars exploring that location. This virtual tourism experience generates great feedback and motivates entrants to keep up their activity to unlock the next video, and for those participants who enjoy the competitive aspect, they can track their teams and other teams progress on the Leaderboard.

Inspiring & Motivating

To provide inspiration and motivation we have collaborated with some of New Zealand's sporting superstars who will be leading the teams through their virtual adventure and providing wellbeing tips along the way. We also provide a weekly update with mini-challenges and the opportunity to win sports shoes from our partner ASICS.

About Us

Kim Harvey, founder Young and Healthy Charitable Trust

For over 25 years, founder of the Young and Healthy Charitable Trust Kim Harvey has poured her energy, passion and knowledge into inspiring and empowering people, big and small, to nurture and improve their mental and physical health and wellbeing as well as they possibly can by taking small steps, every single day. 

Young & Healthy Trust 2019 | Zespri Younf & Healthy Virtual Adventure

Kim started her journey by developing a home-based activity program for families to help them find their way to create sustainable healthy habits.  With funding from Sport Auckland and teamed with a DHB dietician, she often brought her families together to have fun being active together in a supportive environment.  This was so effective it was rolled out nationwide under the Green Prescription “Active Families” banner and continues today. 

 

Seeing a gap in the market for a truly engaging workplace wellbeing program, Kim then worked with a passionate group of animators and developers at Azion Wellness to create an entertaining, online wellbeing challenge that has been embraced by workplaces in New Zealand and Australia for it's effectiveness in helping individuals to embed daily healthy habits that have long term positive impacts.

 

In 2019, Kim established the Young and Healthy Charitable Trust to provide a children's wellbeing program at no cost to schools nationwide and with the support of partners Zespri and ASICS the program is now helping over 20,000 children annually cultivate habits that will lay the groundwork for a lifetime of health and vitality. 

 

Now in 2024 we are pleased to once again work with Azion Wellness to release an updated version of the very successful workplace program with the proceeds helping us deliver our school program at no cost to thousands more kiwi kids.
