‘Make One Change’ Challenge begins

Penn Manor staff members are being challenged to “Make One Change” to improve their health and well-being — and possibly earn a $25 gift card.

The first round of the Make One Change Challenge began this week and will continue through Nov. 26. During that period, staff members who make one positive wellness change and stick with it for five days earn one entry into a drawing for a $25 Sports Authority gift card.

Brian Malek, Central Manor Elementary School teacher and assistant principal, is well into his goal of eliminating sodas from his diet. His first change was a switch to diet sodas; then he eliminated the carbonated drinks altogether. Now on Day 26 of his change, Brian said, “I feel great physically, and I think I feel even better mentally knowing that I’m avoiding soda.”

Staff members must keep their own records of their change, and contest entries are submitted on the honor system. Employees can submit up to 12 entries through Nov. 26 to their building wellness representative. Here is a link to calendars to help you chart those changes:  http://is.gd/pH7BNs

Good luck!
