Register your team

  1. Form a team of 5 members including one team captain (5 in total)
  2. Nominate a team captain and decide on a team name
  3. Team captains obtain the relevant information from their team members (first name, last name, email address, etc,) before completing step 4. Please note that all five members of the team have to be registered at the same time.    Any changes to the team once submitted, will need to be made through the administrators at wellbeing@monash.edu so please check team details prior to submitting your team.
  4. Team captains register the team name and make payment for team members through a cost centre/fund (remember to check if your department or faculty is paying).  Alternatively, if individuals are paying for themselves, the team captain will need to collect monies and pay via credit card using the payment online system. The registration fee is $15 per person for monash staff, students and their family and friends.
  5. Team captains then collect pedometers for their team members at designated campus locations between 17th to 20th October.  Please note that pedometers can only be collected with proof of payment (invoice receipt or confirmation email) for team members who have registered and paid and indicated that they wish to receive a pedometer.
