University employees have until Sunday, February 17 to form their teams for the second round of competition for Thrive Across America and Mix it UP, according to Carol Welch, human resources. Winners from the fall competition will be enjoying their catered lunches in the next few weeks, so now is the time to team up and work toward being in the spring competition’s winner’s circle. Remember, you don’t need to be a star athlete to compete in Thrive Across America or Mix It UP; much like the story of the tortoise and the hare, slow and steady can win the race.
For Thrive Across America, start or join a team of 4-10 coworkers and for every 30 minutes or more of exercise per day, you earn a Thrive Across America star. The more stars you earn, the higher your score. Those who signed up last year do not need to sign up again. For more information go to http://up.thriveacrossamerica.com or contact Welch at 7461 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For Mix It UP, start or join a team of 4 to 10 coworkers and prepare your taste buds for adventure (team membership is not required to participate). Each day, try different kinds of fruits and vegetables and log them on the Mix It Up website at http://up.gomixitup.com. Keep in mind that while employees don’t have to create a new log in and password, they do have to create a new team and sign up teammates. Teams can use the same team name from fall or create a new name. For more information contact Welch at 7461 or email@example.com.
