Van Buren Public Schools Human Resource Office’s 2nd Annual Wellness Challenge started January 14th and ended on March 25th. Staff members enter the contest by getting weighed in and paying $20. Employees are encouraged to be mindful of their wellness during this time (regular exercise, getting enough sleep, meditating, drinking 8 glasses of water, etc). Every 2 weeks, staff members were weighed and their body fat loss percentage was tracked. The female winner for this year is Angela Scroggie who lost 16.3% body fat and the male winner is Ryan Franks who lost 15.8%, who each won $615!
We would like to say Thank You to the businesses who partnered with or donated to the Wellness Challenge this year: The Better Health Store in Belleville, Gingi’s Massage in Belleville, Yoga Jule in Willis, Dream Dinners in Livonia, and Starseed Yoga in Canton!
We are already working on new and exciting things for a Wellness Program next year... stay tuned!
