UT Physical Activity Challenge 2012: Overall Results

Congratulations, you have completed the 6 week for the 2012 UT System Physical Activity Challenge Program. Thank you for your participation.

Overall results: As for the challenge, every institution was a winner. We were able to get non-active employees to become active and also, create awareness of resources and programs available to our members (employees, retirees and dependents).

So thank you all again, without your support this would have not happened. Now we do have to crown a winner for our 2012 institution challenge. This institution did an excellent job promoting the program with the involvement of their Wellness Champions/Ambassadors and HR/Benefits Representatives. Our 2012 Annual UT System Physical Activity Challenge is UT System Administration. Congratulations!

We will be working with UT System Administration to schedule a date to make the official presentation of the 2012 Annual UT System Physical Activity Challenge Traveling Trophy. Final results by institutions as of May 31, 2012. See how your institution did during the 2012 Challenge. Again, we thank you all for supporting this initiative.

All other recognitions will be sent directly to each participant!
