Messiah Wellness Program

 

"Wellness must be a prerequisite to all else."  Ernest Boyer

 

As God’s creation, we recognize that wholeness in life encompasses

 

well-being of body, mind, and spirit.  The wellness program

 

at Messiah College exists primarily to promote wellness

 

education and  provide opportunities for active

 

wellness participation, with the goal of

 

improving the health and well-being

 

of Messiah employees.

Physical Activity Program For Employees

 

If you are participating in physical activity (or would like to begin!) and are willing to

 

record your miles of walking, cycling, running or swimming, or your minutes of any

 

other exercise, then you should join the wellness program we're calling Messiah Goes  

 

to the World Cup.  Employees receive 30 wellness points for participating in a 6-week

 

session.  The fourth 6-week phase begins Feb. 16.  Look for registering details in the  

 

February Intercoms.  Since September, Messiah employees have collectively recorded

 

over 24,000 miles of exercise and symbolically 'sent' 5 Messiah men's soccer players

 

to Brazil for next summer's World Cup!    (It's 4800 miles from Grantham to Brazil)
