Arkansas Tech faculty and staff are able to focus on being healthy this spring by participating in the Blue & You Fitness Challenge.

The challenge, organized by Blue Cross and Blue Shield, is designed to encourage employees to improve their health by exercising 30 minutes a day for at least three days a week. The contest begins March 1, and it runs through May 31.

Organizers say the event is free for all Tech employees and is aimed at making exercise fun.

On the Arkansas Tech campus, participants will be able to get involved by forming competition teams.  Additionally, participants will be able to take part in several group exercise opportunities as well as weekly prize drawings.

Over the past several years Tech has participated in the challenge, more than hundreds of employees have worked to improve their health.

The deadline to register to participate is Wednesday, February 29.  All participants wishing to join a team must register as an individual before joining a team. Go here to register to participate.
