Did you earn a $25 gift card? Fifteen district employees recently did for participating in the Make One Change Program — and improving their health.
The first round of the program, which encourages staff to make one wellness change in their lives, ended last week. Participants’ names were entered into a drawing, and 15 people won gift cards to Weis, Giant or Subway.
The winners were: Pam Egan, Kerry Bushong, Diane Kreider, Courtney Costello, Chris McKnight, Deb Drexel, Shirley Murray, Sarah Repkoe, Shelly Kyle, Shirley Jackson, Bill Southward, Nancy Nadig, Gary Luft, Bill Zapata and Dave Ohl.
Participating staff members have lost weight, improved their diets, started walking or running and taken other steps toward better health.
The next round runs until Jan. 27. During that period, staff members who make one wellness change and stick with it for five days earn one entry into the drawing. When the change becomes a habit, employees are encouraged to pick a new change. Staff members must keep their own records of their change, and contest entries are submitted on the honor system.
Employees may submit up to 12 entries to their building wellness representatives.
