Move It or Lose It is a self-paced wellness program designed to encourage employees to exercise, and is offered as part of the Be Healthy Be Fit program.  The movin’ it part is still the same — the college doesn’t care how you move it, just move it.  Now, however, instead of 750 minutes of moving, you only need to do 400 minutes to complete a tally sheet — that’s about 30 minutes a day.  The incentives have also been revised: instead of $5 incentives, a $25 incentive will be given out every two weeks through a random drawing to two employees that have submitted a tally sheet during the previous two weeks.

Move It or Lose It Change

The Employee Wellness Team has made some changes to the Move It or Lose It Program.  These changes were made in the hope of encouraging more sustained participation by more employees while reducing the costs of the program.

For every completed tally sheet turned in, your name will go into a drawing for a $10 gift card.  One name will be drawn every two weeks beginning September 11.  NOTE:  Tally sheets will not carry over so you want to keep them coming.  Gift certificates can be selected from one of the following:  Creative Dining (Raider Bucks), Art & Bev’s, GRCC Bookstore, MC Sports, Meijer, Subway or Raider Fortunes (which can be used to purchase tickets to Personal Enrichment Team events such as the Holiday Movie).  You get to pick what you want.

These changes will go into effect Monday, August 31.  Anyone currently participating in the program will want to get their tally sheets into the Learning Academy before this date to receive incentives under the current structure.  Questions or comments should be directed to Liz Timmer.
