PennRec Health Challenge
As part of the PennFit program, the Department of Recreation has designed the PennRec Health Challenge which is an incentive program that encourages and rewards Penn students, faculty, and staff to practice healthy lifestyle behaviors.
The PennRec Health Challenge, which started in the fall semester will run through the spring semester. There will be different events that are scheduled and each event will have a point value. There will be various incentive levels where participants will be able to redeem their points. Participants can redeem their points at any time throughout the spring semester, but they must be redeemed by August 25, 2006.
Registration is free. All participants must register for the PennRec Health Challenge before they can earn points for the events. Register online at www.upenn.edu/recreation/programs/healthchallengeform.htm or in the Membership Services Office, rm. 117, Pottruck Fitness Center.
Registration for the scheduled events must be done prior to the workshop.
