Get Healthy for Life with the Penn Wellness Challenge

February 7, 2012, Volume 58, No. 21

If your New Year’s resolution to get healthy has already gone by the wayside—or you’re still struggling to get started—now’s your chance to get moving on your fitness goals this year. Take on the Penn Wellness Challenge and discover a new and healthier you!

Beginning February 20, this eight-week program will help you make small changes to your lifestyle that will have a big impact on your health in the long run. Each week you’ll tackle a different challenge that helps you incorporate new, healthy behaviors into your daily routine. These challenges include eating a healthy breakfast, trying new exercise activities, and adding fruits and vegetables to your meals.

At the end of each week, you’ll record your results. For each challenge you successfully complete, you’ll earn a chance to win one of three exciting raffle prizes: an iPod nano, an iPod touch or an iPad 2. If you complete them all, you’ll have earned eight chances to win a prize!

We’ll help you stay motivated along the way with weekly emails to guide you through every challenge.
