We all know that the holidays offer some serious pitfalls for healthful living.  Schedules get more hectic, and it’s harder to squeeze in healthy meals and exercise sessions. Plus, it’s harder to say no to a friend’s homemade holiday treats and portion sizes get more generous. To make the path to wellness easier during this holiday season, we invite you to take part in this Holiday Wellness Challenge.

Challenge Dates: Nov. 21 – Jan. 15

The cost to participate is $5 and must be paid in Human Resources (HR) by Nov. 18. The faculty or staff member who has the greatest percentage of weight loss during the 8-week challenge wins the total amount collected from the $5 participation fee. The more employees that participate, the larger the winnings.

Rules of participation:

  1. Week of Nov. 14-18 between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. have your beginning weight recorded at the Morton Fitness Center.
  2. From Nov. 21-Jan. 15 commit to exercising more and eating less during this holiday season.
  3. Week of January 16-20 between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. have your ending weight recorded at the Morton Fitness Center.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to win some extra cash while getting fit during the holiday season. Stop by the HR office and pay your $5 and get weighed at the Morton Fitness Center by Nov. 18.

***Disclosure*** Participation is voluntary. The only employees who will see your beginning and ending weights are the staff at the Morton Fitness Center who weigh you and Kim Stergio in HR. This challenge is meant to be a fun way to stay in shape during the holidays. Information obtained is not being shared with anyone outside of the Human Resources Department.‌
