The Wellness Initiative is a way to not only increase your overall health but to win prizes and meet more people as well. This year's program is about complete wellness which is why we will have a financial lunch and learn, a ping pong event, and fitness classes, just to name a few of the events that are going on.
Form teams of 2-4 or participate individually. Every time you attend an event you receive 1 point. For the events that have the multiple sessions at different time you may only receive 1 point as each session is the same thing. * The 3 fitness classes are all different so you may receive 1 point each time you attend one.
Teams & Points
The total points for each team will be divided by the number of team members so that larger teams do not have an upper hand over smaller teams. The top 3 teams will receive a prize. Prizes will also be given to individuals. Everyone will be placed in a draw, based on the number of points they have, to win 1 of 3 prizes.
