APRIL 20 - JUNE 14
Register Now!
The WCA Group Health Trust is excited to announce its 3rd annual physical fitness challenge for all employees and their families.  Teammates will work together to reach the weekly goal of 1600 minutes of physical activity. Please share this registration information with all of your staff.  Get your team together and register by March 21, 2014!

Participants must keep a daily log of their points earned.  One point will be awarded per ten-minute increment of moderate or vigorous aerobic activity or muscle strengthening activity.  Bonus points will be awarded for participation in community/charity sponsored fitness events (ex. 5k run/walk, triathlon, bicycle race).  Each team is working toward a goal of 160 points per week (1600 minutes).  Team members must report their weekly points to their team leader, who will then compile the information and submit to the GHT.

Weekly updates will be available in our GHT Fitness Challenge newsletter, and on Facebook, Twitter and the GHT website.

Each team will designate one member as the Team Leader.  This person will act as the main contact to the GHT.  The Team Leader is responsible for submitting team rosters and informing the GHT of any changes, collecting and reporting the team's points, and distributing mailings and prizes. Weekly point totals will be reported online through the GHT website or the weekly Fitness Challenge Newsletter.

The deadline to register is March 21, 2014.  You can register by clicking the "REGISTER HERE" button on the top of the email, or at the bottom of this section.

This list provides a guideline, but does not include all activities that qualify.  Please use your best judgment when determining if an activity qualifies.  Rounding up to ten minutes or fractional points are not allowed.  Participants cannot do bursts of activities less than ten minutes, and then compile them at the end of day.  Please be honest to make this competition fun and fair for everyone participating.  Your activity should require moderate to vigorous level of effort.  If you are participating in a team sport, please only count the actual time you are active. For example, if you are sitting out an inning during a baseball game, that time doesn't count.
