GHT's Fitness Challenge Week Four Winners

Posted on October 8, 2020

Submit Week 5 Points by Tuesday, October 20, 2020

The WCA Group Health Trust (GHT) Challenge will conclude on October 24, 2020. The leaves may be falling, but that does not mean your activity level needs to fall off. Make a commitment to finishing strong!

The Challenge has been very motivating to Loralei Berry of Auburndale School District. Berry says, "We are loving this challenge, it is motivating us to be accountable to each other."

The Challenge has also helped some participants explore different activities. Jamie Rauth from Gateway Technical College has embraced the challenge and aimed for a couple hours of activity every day. He says, "I used to do one type of exercise, now I do multiple types of exercise every day."

The Week 4 results from the GHT Fitness Challenge have been submitted. You can view the list of Week 4 winners here.

Week 5 Points
Team Leaders must report their team's points by Tuesday, October 20 at 4:00 p.m. to be eligible for the Week 5 prize drawing. All team members report their points to their team leader. The Team Leader can use this link to report their team's total points.

There is a drawing at the end of the challenge for all teams that submit their point totals for every week. So even if you miss the weekly deadline, you should still submit your team's points to be eligible for that final drawing.

Report Week Five points by Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at 4 p.m.

How The Challenge Works
Participants must be a member of the WCA Group Health Trust.

  • All team members must be at least 16 years old.
  • A team leader is chosen to be the contact person and to report weekly team points. You can only be a team leader for one team.
  • During the challenge, participants will track their activity for each week. Their total points for the week will then be reported to their team leader.
  • A team can have 1-4 members. All teams compete in one category. For example, a two-person team will compete against a four member team. Winning teams are determined by their overall point total.

How Points Are Earned
Participants can earn points each day depending on the amount of time they spend doing a physical activity. Choose which category you achieved and record the corresponding points. For example, if you did a 55-minute workout you would report 3 points for that day.

  • 1-30 minutes/day = 1 point
  • 31-60 minutes/day = 3 points
  • 61-120 minutes/day = 5 points
  • 121 or more minutes/day = 7 points
