Join our Ommetje walking challenge today

1 March 2021

Now that we are at home a lot, it is nice to go outside to get some fresh air and stay active during the day. Join the Healthy University Let's Walk Week Ommetje challenge and compete with your colleagues by registering a 20-minute "Ommetje" (a short walk) daily in the Ommetje-app. The challenge will continue until 29 April, 23:59 hrs.

Why Ommetje?

Taking a walk every day is important for your health. You will be more productive and feel more energised after walking an Ommetje. It also helps you to slow down and improves your creativity. When you reach your Ommetje-goal, the dopamine level in your body rises and the increase of dopamine helps to promote positive feelings.

Sign up

  1. Download the Ommetje app in the Google Play Store or the App Store.
  2. Create an account with your ULCN e-mail.
  3. Fill in our unique company code: FTEWP.
  4. Choose your team. Please note: you can’t change this.
  5. Finish your registration.
  6. Take a Ommetje and challenge the rest of your colleagues to join the challenge!

How it works

We have created nine teams in the app. You can walk individually or against others in your team, but also as part of a team against other teams. This way you can walk together without having to be at the same location. In addition, you can achieve all kinds of medals and levels in the app.
