Berries are the low-hanging fruit of our program. They’re accessible activities you do to focus on your well-being. Completing six each year makes you eligible for our $100 Berry incentive.
Throughout the year, BeWell and our Stanford partners offer free Berries to make it easier for you to manage your wellness and earn the incentive. Below are current free Berry opportunities.
- Sign up to become a Champion and earn a Berry for your efforts in bringing wellness to your workgroup (bonus: you can receive wellness grants to pay for exclusive wellness resources and services for your group).
- Register for free, monthly Healthy Living classes.
- Watch up to three recorded webinars for a total of three Berries. Sign into your account to see the recorded webinar options.
- Get validation for up to two Berries offered outside of BeWell or our Stanford partners. Do you track your activity with a fitness tracker or app? Sign into your BeWell account to fill out a validation form and upload five weeks of data to earn a Berry. You can also earn Berries for your annual well-visit, race results, classes taken outside of Stanford, attending support groups for weight loss or emotional health, and many other options. We are inclusive in the health and wellness activities that we accept for Berry credit.
Free Berry opportunities are regularly offered by our Stanford partners.
