During this challenge, employees will score points for tracking their daily water intake and hydration habits. Attached is more information on the importance of drinking water and a physical tracker that can be used if you are having trouble with the app. You will also be added to a Microsoft teams page that will allow you to post pictures of your water at your desk and receive motivation to stay strong throughout the challenge. You will have until July 31st to submit entries and be eligible for a prize!
