Hokie Wellness wants to help employees live well. Participants can use this check list to keep track of their Hokies Live Well activities. Completed tracking logs can be turned in on April 20 at North End Center (suite 2300) from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. or on April 21 at McComas Hall (room 194) from 12-5 p.m. Extended campus participants should email their tracking log to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 21.
Participants are encouraged to keep track of all activities throughout the semester. Those who complete 10 different activities, a minimum of two from each category, will receive a free Hokies Live Well tumbler that keeps drinks hot or cold. Tumblers can be picked up at the Hokie Wellness table at Staff Appreciate Day on May 17. Tumblers will be mailed to extended campus participants.
