Tree Plantation Guidelines For Walkathon
The following rules and guidelines should be followed for the walkathon tree plantation-
- For every 10,000 average steps covered by the team, one tree will be planted after the contest is over, on November 6th.
For Eg. If a team completes 2,00,000 average steps by Nov 6th, then Vantage Fit will plant 20 trees for the team.
Calculation: (Trees planted = (Average steps covered by the whole team)/10000).
- No tree will be planted during the event. Plantation will start only after the completion of the walkathon event. The tree plantation date and the process will be communicated once the contest is over.
- Vantage fit will be primarily responsible for deciding where to plant the trees. Once the contest is over Vantage Fit will share an email with a form which will provide options of tree plantation locations for each team. This email will be sent to the POC of each qualified team who has initially registered for the Global Walkathon.
- Different regions will have different rules for the tree plantation based on their geography and weather.
- It is only under special circumstances that a team may pick the location for planting the tree on their own.
- Planting time will differ and it will be based on different climates and geographic locations. For example, time for tree plantation in Canada will be different than that of Australia.
- Upon completion of the walkathon, each team will be sent a photo of the tree that was planted as proof of accomplishment.
