It’s Time for "The Keene State College Health Challenge"

From Karen Crawford, Human Resources: The President’s Commission for the Promotion of Wellness (PCPOW) is excited to announce the fourth round of “The Keene State College Health Challenge” (formerly called “The Biggest Winner Challenge”), to begin on September 15, 2008.

The Keene State College Health Challenge is a 10-week wellness challenge among six organizations: Home Healthcare Hospice & Community Services (HCS), Keene Middle School, the City of Keene, Cheshire Medical Center, Carlisle Flooring, and Keene State College. Each organization has teams who compete to become healthier through a combination of weight loss and improved fitness. The organization that shows the most improvement will take possession of the “Employer Wellness Promotion Award.”

To participate you must form your own team of two. Submit the names of the team members to Karen Crawford at by Wednesday, September 10 with e-mail address, mailstop, and phone extensions listed for both participants. An initial assessment including weight, heart rate, and time while completing a measured mile must be completed during the week of September 8 – 12. Contact Chris Miles at 8-2697, or to set up an appointment.

All participants must weigh in every week starting with the second week of the challenge. Teams will be allowed to miss only one weigh-in.

The Keene State College Health Challenge kickoff meeting will be on Friday, September 5, at 12:15 p.m. in the Science Center, Room 101. In addition to discussing the details of the challenge, you can sign up your team or talk to others who are looking to create a team. We look forward to seeing you there. Do something for yourself: invest some time in your health.
