SHAPE Update: The Summer Getaway Edition

1000 Mile Club Winner

Congratulations to Ann Wiltshire at Shasta, winner of the drawing among the 120 staff members who achieved 1000 Mile Club status. Ann chalked up her 1000 “Miles” through regular exercise. As the winner of the drawing she receives a $50 gift card.

 

Survey Drawing Winners

Filling out the quick SHAPE survey has earned Fairfield’s Michelle Richard and Cary Weeks from Prairie Mountain $25 VISA gift cards. The survey will help SHAPE continue to fine tune its offerings and provide opportunities that better meet your needs. The data will also help SHAPE qualify for another year of grant funding, so thanks to all who took part.

What You Can Do

  • If you are cleaning out your house and come across a Fitness DVD you’d like to donate, it would help us build our Fitness Library.
  • Improving your health this summer doesn’t have to mean changing everything at once. Set realistic and achievable goals and try one change at a time.  Add in a walk 3 times a week or choose a piece of fruit for a snack.  You can change your health for the better if you work on making conscious decisions about what you eat and how you move.

Stay healthy and enjoy your summer…you deserve it!
