This year marked the 6th offering of the “Become an ACC Exercise Star” Challenge coordinated by the ACC Employee Wellness Program to promote increased activity among our employees. 495 ACC faculty and staff participated this spring, of which 323 employees completed the challenge by meeting the goal for their activity level. This is a completion rate of 65.3%, and 7.4% more than last year! We also welcomed 131 new participants to the challenge this year.
The Challenge ran from February 1 through April 11, 2021, with the added challenge of not only the COVID-19 pandemic, but 2 weeks of a Texas Icepocalypse.
Together, employees logged a whopping 1,067,893 total minutes of exercise which equals 741 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 Wednesday, April 28, 2021. In case you missed it, click HERE to check out the video!
Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s challenge and we look forward to seeing you again through other challenges throughout the year and back for more Exercise Stars in 2022.
