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)
