We’re nearly halfway through the Live Healthy Iowa 10 Week Wellness Challenge, and we’re already seeing the results of our hard work.
The team in the lead at this point in the challenge is Weapons of Mass Reduction with 5,120 minutes of activity and a group weight loss of .55 percent. Each team member earned a pedometer for their efforts.
For individual tracking, Ralph Blank and Ashley Jankowski are tied for most weight lost at 1.7 percent, and Joe Kier has logged the most activity at 2,050 minutes.
Since 2002, Live Healthy Iowa has helped people lose weight and be more active through its 10 Week Wellness Challenge. This year, BAT Logistics decided to help the organization with its goal to make Iowa the healthiest state in the nation.
“We spend a lot of time taking care of others, taking care of business, taking care of things, and so often neglect taking care of ‘me,'” said Jankowski, BAT’s General Manager. “This wellness challenge is encouraging our staff to do just that- take care of themselves. If we can be the best and feel the best, we will give our best.”
