Hospital and Health Service Health Challenge

Mackay Hospital and Health Service's Let's Shape Up campaign has challenged the CQ Hospital and Health Service's 10,000 Lives campaign to see who can collectively achieve the most weight and waist girth loss.

This Challenge is about celebrating the goals of participants who are aiming to lead a healthier lifestyle one step at a time.

How does the Challenge work?

In the Health Measures section, select which Health Challenge you would like to join: CQ Hospital and Health Service, Mackay Hospital and Health Service or Other. Both new and existing members can join the Challenge from the Health Measures section. 

Then set your goals, log your daily steps and weekly weight and waist girth and your totals will automatically contribute. Visit this page regularly to see which Health Service is closest to the 10,000 challenges!

N.B. None of your individual measures can be viewed by other participants. Only the totals of all participants are shown. 

How can I be involved?

The Health Challenge is now finished. Stay tuned for information about further Health Challenges.

Case Study

The Health Challenge feature was originally developed for two Queensland Hospital and Health Services looking to encourage healthy lifestyles in their community. However, it can be adapted to be used between other Health Services, communities or large organisations looking to do a healthy lifestyles intervention.
