It's Almost GHT Fitness Challenge Time!

Posted on March 9, 2018

The WCA Group Health Trust (GHT) is excited to announce its seventh annual fitness challenge from April 8-May 19.
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.
  • 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. There is one category, so for example, a two person team will compete against a four member team. 
  • 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.
Weekly Prize Drawing:  Each week, every team that reports their total points will be entered in a prize drawing. The chosen teams will receive prizes for each team member that will be sent to the team leader.
Diligent Reporter: Any team that reports points for every week will be entered in a drawing at the end of the challenge.  Each team member will receive a prize.
Challenge Winner:  The top 30 teams will receive prizes.  Each  team member will receive a voucher to purchase merchandise. The prize selection is to be determined.
