This year marked the 7th offering of the “Become an ACC Exercise Star” Challenge coordinated by the ACC Employee Wellness Program to promote increased activity among our employees.  368 ACC faculty and staff participated this spring, of which 240 employees completed the challenge by meeting the goal for their activity level.  This is a completion rate of 65.2%, which is right on par with last year’s results and 7.4% more than the previous year!

The Challenge ran from January 31 through April 10, 2022…10 weeks of friendly competition between our 13 campus locations. 

Together, employees logged a whopping 803,620 total minutes of exercise which equals 558 days of continuous exercise.   That’s over a year and a half of exercise or approximately 40,181 miles walking at a brisk pace. That could get us around the world 1.6 times or one sixth of the way to the moon.

ACC President, Dr. Richard Rhodes, congratulated and presented awards for the Top Individual Stars and Most Active Campuses via a live Zoom virtual awards celebration on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

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 2023.
