Welcome to the SUNY Cortland Wellness Challenge

What is the SUNY Cortland Wellness Challenge?

This year’s Challenge will be an 8-week competition that runs from Monday, March 19, 2018, through Sunday, May 13, 2018.

The SUNY Cortland Wellness Challenge takes a team approach to encourage building healthier lifestyles and workplaces. It brings together four-person teams in a friendly contest to see which team earns the most points by tracking steps, exercise routines and eating five fruits and veggies a day.

The SUNY Adirondack Wellness Challenge Point System is comprised of the following:

  • Total Steps (using a pedometer)
  • Physical Activities that you would consider true exercise
  • Losing % of Body Weight (based on a formula)
  • Eating a Combination of Fruits and Vegetables
  • Bonus Points
