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

physical activity program
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 record your minutes of
any other exercise, then you should join our Messiah Goes to the World Cup program.
Employees receive 30 wellness points for participating in a 6-week session. Our second
session began on Nov. 10, so get registered now! The mass email sent out on 11/5 has
the instructions and the links. Questions? Email Doug Miller...
As of 11/13/13 we have collectively accumulated over 9600 miles of exercise and
symbolically sent 2 Messiah soccer players to Brazil for next summer's World Cup!
