SNC Take the Challenge
September 30th - November 17th, 2013

What is "SNC Take the Challenge"
o    This is a 7 week holistic wellness program designed to engage the students, staff and faculty of St. Norbert College in taking ownership of their physical, emotional, and
      spiritual health.       
o    Each week will hold a new challenge.  
o    Participants are encouraged to have a “buddy,” for encouragement and support (on campus or at home).
o    Earn points each week by completing activities that promote healthy eating, exercise, relaxation, spirituality, wellness, and time management.
o    Our hope is to plant a seed that empowers individuals to take steps toward improving their general health/wellbeing and the health/wellbeing of those supporting them.
o    We are partnering once again with Human Resources to offer another opportunity for you to manage your personal wellness.
