What is Thrive Across America?

Thrive Across America is an online physical activity program where you travel from Maine to Hawaii, along a virtual route. On the way you’ll visit more than 50 of our country’s most treasured outdoor attractions, brought to life with vivid pictures and detailed descriptions.

Who can participate?

Whether you’re just starting out or an experienced exerciser, Thrive Across America gives you simple, motivating tools to track your progress and see results. With dozens of activities to choose from, you can increase activity and improve health no matter what your interests or ability.

How does it work?

Each time you record physical activity minutes, you move along a virtual route that winds through the United States, passing through America’s most exciting outdoor attractions. Aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity, five days a week.

When does the program start?

Registration and team formation opens Monday, September 2. All teams must be formed by Sunday, September 29. You may begin recording your activity on Monday, September 16. The team competition will end on Sunday, November 10, but you may continue logging your activity and using all the fun features in Thrive Across America through September 15, 2014.

How does the team competition work?

Team participation is optional—and a lot of fun. Each day you record 30 or more minutes of physical activity, you earn a Thrive Across America star for your team. The more stars your team earns, the higher the score. The team competition runs September 16 to November 10. The deadline to have your activity count toward the team score is November 11.
