During the April luncheons, Wellness Connection provided a sneak peek of the new activity challenge and asked the champions to participate, lead a team, & invite their colleagues to join in. You all knocked it out of the park: approximately 20% of all 10K-A-Day teams are led by Wellness Connection Champions – that’s amazing!
- 85% of Wellness Champions are participating in the challenge;
- 65% of those participating champions are also leading a team;
- While champions make up 2.67% of all participants, they make up 19.12% of team captains.
Our captains continue to find ingenious and creative ways to lead, motivate, and encourage their teammates to incorporate more movement into their daily lives. Many of you send inspirational messages, regular reminders to log steps, and incorporate some version of friendly interoffice competition.
Sherry Lohmann & Mary Uhrich are team captains within the Program in Physical Therapy who organized a drawing for a gift basket for all of their colleagues who enrolled in 10K-A-Day.
Atia Thurman hosted a dedicated onsite screening event at the Brown School, which included a registration table for the challenge.
