Employees Get Their Steps In with DOMA's Summer Fitness Challenge
DOMA employees logged their steps and joined teams to virtually race around Hawaii for the Summer Fitness Challenge
August 31, 2021
DOMA’s Summer Fitness Challenge had employees teaming up to complete a 38-day virtual race around Hawaii’s Maui island. Using the My Virtual Mission platform, individuals and teams raced to complete a considerable hike of 146.3 miles around the perimeter of Maui. With the challenges posed by the need to work remotely and social distance, it’s been tough to find good avenues for building team spirit. This virtual race allowed the DOMA team to work together or compete individually using a smartphone app to track distances. Additionally, a feature powered by Google maps allowed participants to see street views of their location. This virtual fitness vacation was a great way to take advantage of the summer weather and get outside.
Finding ways to give back while having fun is important to DOMA. In addition to being a great team-building and fitness opportunity, DOMA decided to add a charitable component by donating a dollar for every mile traveled to two different veteran’s focused charities. This means that Veterans Miracle Center and Veteran’s Homefront will each be receiving a donation of $1,972 this summer thanks to the efforts of our team.

Each of our participants was rewarded with a medal at our 2021 Summer BBQ. In addition, our first-place finishers were able to select from a range of fitness-themed prizes such as a smart water bottle that reminds you to stay hydrated, a deep tissue massage gun, gym bags, and more.
DOMA aims to build a supportive culture that prioritizes fun (it is one of our core values after all) and we are continuing to plan initiatives with employee input that will help us build connections and return to the workday with new energy. There are big plans for the Fall and Winter that we hope will get us back on track after a tough year of remote work.
