March is famously known for its annual NCAA basketball tournament, but the Big Shot Bracket Challenge offers healthy, team-based competition that can be enjoyed year-round. Hoops fan or not, this elimination challenge is a fun way for participants to get active together and compete with their colleagues to be the last team standing! In addition to awarding Wellable Points for physical activity, participants receive health tips throughout the challenge that highlight the benefits of activities that promote social well-being.
This challenge is unique in that it consists of three separate rounds. Rounds can last for four, six, eight, ten, or twelve days in length. The longer the round, the longer the challenge. Over the course of the event, participants will compete on teams of between four and eight participants in a bracket style competition. A minimum of five teams is required to launch this challenge.
Round 1: Company-Wide Competition
Top four teams advance to Round 2
Round 2: Playoffs (Top Four Teams)
Top two teams advance to Round 3
Round 3: Finals (Top Two Teams)
Top team wins the competition
All participants earning Wellable Points will be entered into raffles to win a reward, regardless of whether or not their team is still competing in the challenge. At the end of each elimination round, three individual raffle winners will be selected to win a prize. Grand prizes will also be awarded at the end of the event to all participants of the team that win the Big Shot Bracket Challenge, and the top Wellable Point earner on the winning team will receive a special MVP reward.
The raffle structure helps stretch a rewards budget for maximum impact by encouraging participation throughout the challenge and rewarding participants of the top team encourages continued collaboration and teamwork.

There is no limit to the number of participants that can be part of a team, so teams can be any size. Wellable recommends creating teams of between four and eight members to ensure the benefits of being part of a team are achieved while maintaining accountability.
Teams are ranked by the average number of Wellable Points for all members of a team. This means that teammates with zero Wellable Points during a challenge will lower the score of the entire team, which is why encouraging your teammates to stay active throughout the challenge is so important.
