This year marked the 5th offering of the “Become an ACC Exercise Star” Challenge coordinated by the ACC Employee Wellness Program to promote increased activity among our employees.  587 ACC faculty and staff participated this spring, which was a 67% increase from last year, and the most participants in the history of the challenge.  256 of these participants were new to the challenge.  The Challenge ran from February 3 through April 12, 2020, with half of the challenge spanning through the COVID-19 pandemic.  340 employees completed the challenge and met their goal, for a completion rate of 58%.

Together, employees logged a whopping 1,069,911 total minutes of exercise which equals 743 days of continuous exercise.   That’s over 2 years of exercise!  

ACC President, Dr. Richard Rhodes, congratulated and presented awards for the Top Individual Stars and Most Active Campuses via a livestream virtual awards celebration on Friday, May 8, 2020.  Click HERE to check out the video from this livestream event!
