Holy Spirit Parish Fitness Challenge – Teams Now Forming
In preparation to strut our stuff at the annual Catholic Charities 5K/10K Spring Forward Run (or walk!), the new Wellness Ministry Team challenges the rest of the parish to “out exercise” them! The spirit of the challenge is to work as a team to encourage and support one another as we all strive for healthier lifestyles.
Parishioners who want to participate are asked to create a team (4-6 people), a team name and identify a team captain (their main role is for data entry and to be team motivators).
Over the next 10 weeks (February 1 to April 10) each participant is asked to track how many minutes of exercise they get each day. At the end of each week, participants have to submit their “weekly exercise minutes earned” to their team captain who then tallies their team’s cumulative exercise minutes for that week, and enters it into the Fitness Challenge (this process is repeated weekly for the duration of the challenge).
At the end of the challenge, the teams that “out exercises” the Lead Wellness Team wins the challenge and are rewarded by a “Victory Lunch” provided and served by the Leadership Team.
Sign up with family and friends below, or email Leah Harris, Director of Pastoral Care, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, in-person sign-ups will be taken after all the Masses the weekend of January 31 – February 1.
