Sign up for Health Hero on October 14th! A fun, interactive social media wellness program.
Health Hero is a team based social network just for Bates and an engaging way to capture our fitness and wellness activities in a fun way. We are also excited to let everyone know that there will be a recognition ceremony luncheon in December where the winning team and individuals will receive real trophies and medals!
Since Health Hero is all about teamwork. Everyone will be on a team and a “super captain” will lead each team. Your super captain is there to motivate, encourage safety, promote integrity, and lead holistic wellness within the team. The initial teams will be setup in Health Hero and you will receive an email from Health Hero with instructions on how to login and details on how the platform works on Monday, October 14.
This fun challenge is two-fold in that it allows us to not only set and accomplish our own health and wellness goals, but it gives us an opportunity to experience a fun and interactive web & mobile experience that can be leveraged with all of our employees.
The challenge will consist of setting and meeting various fitness goals, tracking your workouts via smartphone applications such as Runkeeper and PearSports, text message, email, or via the Health Hero portal, and completing various holistic health challenges online at Health Hero for point accumulation – and to win! The health challenges in Health Hero hit all aspects of wellness: family, social, spiritual, nutritional, and mental since we all know wellness is much more than just eating kale and running road races.
