FALL IN STEP UP: UN Global Health Challenge 2023

The Public Health Unit in the Division of Healthcare and Management and Occupational Health (DHMOSH) invites you to welcome the New Year by “stepping” to improve your overall health for 45 days, from January 1 to February 14, 2024.

Aim to reach an average of  8,000 steps a day by Valentine's Day.

This is an individual challenge.

IT'S NOT JUST WALKING! An in-app conversion of non-walking activities to "steps" is provided. You can bike, do housework, dance, play sports and they're all counted!


Sign up in a few easy steps to start stepping!

  1. Download the MoveSpring app on your mobile device via the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android) or navigate to app.movespring.com in a web browser on your phone.
  2. Choose “Sign up”.
  3. Enter the org code: UN (not case sensitive)
  4. Follow the steps to create your MoveSpring account. Make sure to use your valid and official Organization email to ensure your account doesn’t get deleted.
  5. Once you set up your account, scroll down to the "Challenges" section of your dashboard
  6. Check the "Upcoming" tab to see "BONJOUR 2024”.
  7. Click the banner then click the blue "Join" button.
  8. You should now see the Challenge in your own dashboard. If it doesn’t appear, wait a few moments for the app to synchronize. You may exit and reopen the app.


  • Only staff members with valid and official UN organization email are eligible to join. Accounts with email addresses that cannot be verified will be removed. 
  • The UN only has limited licenses to the app. Non-syncing accounts will be periodically removed to free up the slots for new users.
  • Ensure that the Country in your profile corresponds to that of your current duty station.
  • There is NO MANUAL ENTRY of steps for this round. All steps should either be automatically synced from the mobile app or converted using Movespring's activity-to-step converter.


  • Aside from being able to manually enter your steps in the mobile app, you can also synchronize your steps from your personal tracking device to the app on your phone via Bluetooth. 


  • Make sure you sync your steps each day of the challenge by opening the MoveSpring app or website. We strongly suggest syncing at least once a day! At minimum you need to sync every 3 days to make sure MoveSpring gets all your steps. Users will be responsible for making sure they sync regularly to get credit for totals.


  • You can follow these steps to convert non-stepping activities into step totals and directly input them into MoveSpring to increase your daily step counts.


  • Change your user name and password, add a profile picture, update your registered Country to your current duty station.
