Wellness Champion Spotlight: Coast to Coast Team Captains

Wellness Connection asked the Champions to support our 2019 wellness challenges by leading the way as Team Captains and encouraging their colleagues to participate. Our Champions did not disappoint. We saw record high participation in both of our 2019 wellness challenges, with 3,000+ participants in each!

One in five. Out of every five team captains, one was a Wellness Champion. That’s an amazing level of representation in a challenge of over 3,000 participants.

Champions also supported the challenges by participating. Approximately 84% of Champions participated in the challenges, and 52-65% of Champions led as Team Captains:

Thank you for encouraging your colleagues to be mindful of their movement and to participate in this University initiative.

It’s always fun to see what our Champions are doing to motivate their teammates and encourage a culture of fun and well-being in the office. Thank you Dani Tallchief, Lara Jennings, and Britt Hemingway for sharing your efforts:
