Register now for week of competition, wellness with Choices

April 11, 2012

Want to win money for your club, get free T-shirts (Turtle Trot!) and learn more about healthy food and fitness—a look at the many facets of wellness?

Everyone (faculty, staff, and students) is invited to take part in myChoices: A Health & Wellness Exploration, April 23-29. Sessions include everything from aqua zumba to discussions about art therapy, learning the basics of lacrosse, and sports trivia, all culminating in a field day on April 29.

For clubs who can field a team of five people, there are three ways to win:

1.     Win the week:  The top three teams of 5 players who accumulates enough stamps on stamp cards each member receives (stamps are awarded for each activity attended) will win prizes of $75 (third place), $150 (second place), and $225 (first place). The good news is this money can be rolled over into next year's budget!

2.     Win Field Day: The winners of Field Day will win Finals Survival Kits for each team member.

3.     Everyone's a winner!: Free t-shirts will be available on a first come, first served basis for the Turtle Trot; every Field Day participant will receive a free shirt and food will be served (sandwiches, snacks, drinks) after the Field Day is complete.

Teams who want to compete for cash prizes need to register here; to see a full schedule of the week’s events, click here. (Note: all events scheduled to begin at 12:20 p.m. will now be changed to 12:30 p.m.)

Deadline for team registrations is Friday, April 20—individuals do not need to register to participate.

CHOICES Beloit is a three-year program that focuses on collaboration among students, faculty, and staff to cultivate a healthy campus community, funded by a grant. While alcohol education will be the foundation upon which all of our programming is built, wellness is and will remain a constant theme of our educational efforts.
