100-day Wellness Challenge
Vice President for Administration Dr. Calvin D. Jamison led a walk across campus for students, faculty and staff members Thursday, Jan. 26, to kick off the 2012 100-day Wellness Challenge. The campus Wellness Committee, a co-sponsor of the event, distributed giveaways to participants immediately after the walk.
Those interested in participating in the 100-day Wellness Challenge should form and organize teams of two to 10 people, and register on the Live Healthy North Texas website. The password is LHDUTD, and the cost is $20 per person. The 100-day Wellness Challenge runs through May 1.
Visit the Live Healthy North Dallas website, or contact a member of the UT Dallas Wellness committee for more information.
The Live Healthy 100-day Wellness Challenge is a team-centric weight loss and physical activity program that assists in making positive changes that lead to a healthier lifestyle.
In 2008, UT Dallas was one of the first Texas employers, and the only institution of higher learning, to participate in the program. UT Dallas is still active and losing weight while on our way to becoming a healthy, Tier One university.
The 2011 Challenge ended on April 29th. Congratulations to McDermott on the Move and HDP Regulators for being the team winners in the weight loss and activity. In all, participants lost 211 pounds and engaged in 141,760 minutes of activity!
