What is the Challenge

This year the SUNY Wellness Challenge will be an 8-week competition that runs from Monday, March 13, 2017, through Sunday, May 7, 2017.

The SUNY Wellness Challenge takes a team approach to encourage building healthier lifestyles and workplaces. It brings together four-person teams in a friendly contest to see which team earns the most points by tracking steps, exercise routines and eating five fruits and veggies a day.

Each SUNY school will run their Wellness Challenge with their employees competing against their colleagues. Each school will have their teams, leagues, divisions, and winners; as well as point people that can answer questions you may have.

  • Each team will be made up of four players
  • One Employee MUST be Team Captain

The SUNY Wellness Challenge Point System is comprised of the following:

  • Total Steps (using a pedometer)
  • Physical Activities that you would consider true exercise
  • Losing % of Body Weight (based on a formula)
  • Eating a Combination of Fruits and Vegetables
  • Drinking 8 cups (8 oz. each) of Water
  • Bonus Points
