Employee Wellness Holiday Hold Challenge

Staying on top of your weight goals can feel daunting during the holidays, but maintaining your weight is achievable. The Holiday Hold Challenge is a program designed to encourage participants to beat the odds this holiday season and is available to all full-time, benefits eligible employees. You are not required to be covered under the University-sponsored health plan to join this challenge.

How the Holiday Hold Challenge Works

The program begins with a weigh-in before Thanksgiving and ends with a weigh-out after New Year’s. You can do this on your own, privately. Participants will report their pre- and post-holiday weight, on their own, to Be Well Solutions.

Participants will receive educational materials throughout the challenge to help them avoid the one- to two-pound weight gain that most Americans experience between Thanksgiving and New Year’s.

All participants who register for the Holiday Hold Challenge and submit their pre and post weight to Be Well by the deadline will receive 20 Tier 2 wellness reward points to jump start their Tier 2 total for 2020. In addition, all participants who have successfully 'held their own' will be entered to win a New Year's prize drawing.

Visit tinyurl.com/HolidayHold to register. Registration closes Nov. 19 at 5 p.m. For questions, contact Employee Wellness at wellness@kent.edu. Additional program details will be send to all registrants from Be Well Solutions closer to the start date.
