Sixth annual Kick Axe Wellness Challenge kicks off spring 2020
Welcome to the Kick Axe Wellness Challenge! This five-week challenge is focused on using SFA’s Seven Dimensions of Wellness to promote a healthier lifestyle. Teams of four compete in a little friendly competition and earn points by completing weekly tasks. These teams can consist of faculty members, staff and students.
Registration open: Jan. 13 to 24
Challenge dates: Jan. 27 to March 1
Each team must have a team captain who is responsible for encouraging fellow members to submit weekly scorecards and serving as the point of contact during the challenge. The registration form is available as a fillable .PDF and only one form per team is needed.
Keeping Score with Scorecards
Scorecards will be emailed to the team captain who is responsible for disseminating the scorecard to team members. Each team member must complete and submit weekly scorecards to the team captain who will then submit the team summary scorecard to the challenge coordinator by noon each Wednesday. Scorecards submitted on time with the full team’s scores will earn an extra 20 points (five points per team member).
Earn extra points!
Calendar of Events and Activities
In addition to the daily tasks you can complete each week to earn points, you can earn points by attending or completing special activities. Visit the Calendar of Events and Activities page to see the list and check back periodically as events are added throughout the challenge. You can earn a 15-point maximum under this category, but you must attend at least half of each athletic event or artistic performance to earn points.
After each week, the team that earned the greatest number of points for the week will win a prize for the team members' hard work. If your team didn’t have a great week, don’t worry. You can still win the following week. Weekly winning teams will be announced through email.
Grand prizes will be awarded to the top three teams with the greatest cumulative score. In addition, every participant who completes the five-week challenge will earn a prize. *All five weeks of scores must have been submitted to earn a prize.
