UNCG finishes third in state in ‘Be Active’

The results are in. And the campus titleholders for the summer’s Be Active Worksite Throwdown have been announced.

Two UNCG worksite teams – Tommy’s Angels and the Chunky Monkeys – tied for the most active UNCG team. Each team had an overall average of 473 minutes of physical activity per week.

All the participants on campus were winners. As the team captain for the Student Success Center team said, “I’m really proud of my team — our team average every week was above the minimum, and our overall challenge averages per participant look great too. I know that it really inspired me to make going to the gym a priority.”

Michelle Cathorall, director of HealthyUNCG, noted this team was “really consistent and increased their minutes of activity each week of the challenge.”

The “Be Active NC” coordinator was on hand to present the campus a certificate for being the third most active worksite that participated in the state.

More than 30 UNCG employees participated.

HealthyUNCG coordinated the teams for UNCG, which had seven teams..

Twenty worksites – with 139 teams – participated across the state, according to Cathorall.
