The Oregon Trail Challenge is the most beloved step challenge at Stewart and brings out our friendly competitive sides while encouraging employees to stay active.
Team Rainbow Dash were this year’s winners, including Jamey Baysinger, Michael Domanski, Jamie Harward, Shangwen Liu, Tom McLane, Jordan Schoff, and Harrison Wenchell.
In 2020, Stewart had 42 participants who walked 7,477 miles over eight weeks. Collectively, the group “traveled the Oregon Trail” nearly 3.5 times!
The challenge was inspired by the Oregon Trail educational computer game created in the 1970s. Stewart created a detailed, points-based scoring strategy that combined MoveSpring step averages with real-life, board-game-style dice rolls.
