After your team captain creates a team and registers using the University of Iowa registration code  ("LHIUIOWA"), you will receive an email with your login information.


The subsidy code is only for use with UI employees. We encourage UI employees to form teams with other faculty/staff colleagues. Teams who have registered using the University of Iowa subsidy code but have non-UI participants on their team (persons without an email) will receive an invoice from Live Healthy Iowa for the regular $22 participant fee.


Encourage your team to register as a UI team. They will receive motivational emails and help us compete against other Iowa businesses and schools in total weight loss and minutes of activity.

When team captains register, entering the registration code "LHIUIOWA" will identify their team with the University of Iowa.
