KSU Faculty/Staff Are on the Move!

Get ready to lace up those sneakers and stretch those muscles. Starting Monday, April 8 and continuing through June 30, Kent State University will again compete for the top spot in the On the Move Challenge. 

Record your weekly BLAMS! Boost teammates, learn more about what motivates you, assess your progress, move yourself physically, and share your goals.  Revel in the comradery and connections made with your Kent State colleagues. Find new ways to move your body where, when, how and as much as you want. You have nothing to lose but good health to gain. Join our team and let’s move TEAM KENT STATE up that leaderboard together!

Wellness Your Way Points Eligible: Eligible employees may qualify to earn 60 (Tier 2) wellness reward points. Participants must have at least 65 percent of the total available points (6,461 points) by the end of the 12-week challenge to qualify.

To set skeptical minds at ease, note that you need not be a triathlete to feel and experience a tremendous amount of success in this competition, as physical activity is one component of this initiative.  With your personal coach, Sean Foy, encouraging you all the way, all you need is a commitment to move a little bit more each week, engage in the weekly health topics, and be willing to “boost” your teammates. For tracking your moves, you may use a wearable device, such as a Fitbit or Garmin, that can be easily linked to the Challenge or you can take advantage of the device-free option and manually enter any activity (e.g. swimming, walking, elliptical, house chores, move of the week, etc.).

Registration is extremely easy and is the best way to get started. Simply go to www.onthemovechallenge.welcoa.org before April 8, 2019, and enter company code KentStateThrives247 as you complete your profile. This challenge is open to all full- and part-time Kent State University faculty and staff on all campuses. 

For questions, please feel free to contact Employee Wellness at ext. 20392 or 27501. You may also email wellness@kent.edu.
