Hello, can you tell me if there is a way to switch teams? Thanks!

It looks like this site is still active, so I'm wondering if the challenge & fundraising is still active as well. I was able to choose the oncology team, so I'm wondering if we're still able to participate at this time.

Thank you for reaching out and we’re happy to hear you are interested in the challenge! Unfortunately, this challenge did end in April, but Mayo Clinic employees can still use PerkHealth for free that’s why you were able to sign up. But, since the challenge has ended, your minutes of exercise won’t go towards the teams. We encourage you to continue being physically active and utilize the Well-Being website: http://intranet.mayo.edu/charlie/well-being/ for upcoming challenges and other ideas relating to wellness. Thank you!
