Get Up! Get Out! Get Going! - Join the 2013 UT System Physical Activity Challenge

UT System and your institution's Health & Wellness program are challenging you to "Get Up! Get Out! And Get Going!" starting on May 1. It's almost time to join your institution's team and compete in our 2013 UT System Physical Activity Challenge!

This year's Challenge is being hosted through the Living Well Health Platform powered by Provant* and is fully supported by each institution's Health & Wellness Program. By logging your physical activity, you can help your institution come out on top!

Are You Ready?

Here are the key details:

Your institution is your team, so get together with your coworkers and find ways to fit physical activity into your day. Take a walk at lunch, meet up at the gym, encourage each other to get moving – and keep track of what you do! The institution with the greatest percentage of activity logged will be awarded the coveted "Traveling Trophy!"

*The Living Well Health Platform is available to all UT SELECT Medical Plan members aged 18 and over - including Employees, Retirees, Dependents, Surviving Spouses and COBRA participants.

UT System's "Living Well: Make it a Priority" Worksite Health & Wellness program provides a wealth of resources dedicated to your better health. Find more information about the 2013 Physical Activity Challenge and additional helpful resources at: www.livingwell.utsystem.edu.
