NMU STAFF WIN 'GET MOVING U.P.' STAGE 11 PRIZES

MARQUETTE - Northern Michigan University staff members won the Stage 11 individual and team prizes in the "Get Moving U.P." challenge sponsored by the Wellness Council of the Upper Peninsula, or WELCUP.

Barb Platt (pictured), a senior research analyst at NMU, won the $25 individual drawing. The "Comer Crew," a four-person team representing the Student Activities and Leadership Programs office, split the $1 00 team drawing. Members included Rachel Harris, Cara Kamps, Bernadette Norden and David Bonsall. All completed the total minutes of activity required in Stage 11 to be eligible for the drawings.

"Get Moving U.P," a worksite incentive program, ended June 8. The nine-week challenge was designed to encourage participants to incorporate regular activity moderate and/or vigorous - into their routines. Individuals and teams of four recorded their daily minutes of physical activity on a specially designed U.P. map. This mythical, four-stage trip took them from Ironwood to Mackinac Island.

Thirty-two teams and 14 individuals representing NMU registered for the program.
