WELLNESS WORKS! would like to thank all who participated in Walk Across Texas!, an 8-week physical fitness program created by our own Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. As extra incentive to participate, we created a campus-wide competition for all departments across Texas A&M for a chance to win a wellness gran. Congratulations to our grant winners!

  • 2nd place - $750: CVM Busy Bees – 3,752.84 miles
  • 3rd place - $500: Holy Walkamolies #1 – 3,656.20 miles

 

Walk Across Texas! is an 8-week physical fitness program created by our own Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service that encourages individuals and teams up to eight people to track and monitor their physical activity with the goal of earning enough miles to walk across the State of Texas (833 miles).

Campus-Wide Competition! WELLNESS WORKS! has created a campus-wide competition for all departments across Texas A&M University. Top three departments with the greatest distance traveled at the end of the 8-week period will be awarded a Wellness Grant. Grants will be provided to 1st place, $1,000; 2nd place $750; and 3rd place $500. Teams must consist of at least four people from the same department, who will then receive the Wellness Grant funds for that department.
**TEAM CAPTAINS: To ensure your teams are in the run for this competition, select “Texas A&M University” as the group!
