Participate in the Chancellor’s Challenge

The Chancellor’s Challenge continues with an open house for faculty and staff at the Center for Physical Activity and Health Enhancement, a historical hike, and physical activity for the mind.
The first Chancellor's Challenge is a team event designed by the Department of Health and Human Performance to encourage UTC students, faculty and staff to develop health lifestyles. A cash award and special prize will be awarded to one student and one faculty or staff member for participation.

Teams will earn points for all physical activity and bonus points for participating in special events and activities hosted by the Chancellor's Challenge and other organizations promoting healthy living such as the American Heart Association, Komen Foundation, and the American Diabetes Association.
An open house at the Center for Physical Activity and Health Enhancement is scheduled for Monday, September 11 from 3-6 p.m. in Room 115 of the McKenzie Arena.  This facility is open to all faculty and staff for a low monthly fee.  Sign up for door prizes and incentives.

A hike through historical Chattanooga will be offered to faculty, staff and students on Tuesday, September 13 from 5-6 p.m., beginning on Lansing Court.  A drawing will be held for a pedometer.
To engage in physical activity for the mind, visit the Chancellor’s Challenge website.  Bonus points can be acquired by completing the questionnaire.

All participants in the Challenge meeting minimum point requirements are eligible for multiple incentives and awards, inclusive of a $500 cash award from Chancellor Brown and a 32 inch television from the Department of Health and Human Performance for one lucky faculty or staff member and one lucky student. Participants taking part in any of the Bonus Activities listed on the Chancellor’s Challenge web page increase their chances of winning one of these wonderful celebration awards.

“UTC employees and students will be encouraged to set personal goals for achieving moderate levels of exercise, to monitor progress toward these goals, and to develop healthier lifestyles that include daily physical activity,” said Dr. Greg Heath, head of the Department of Health and Human Performance. “There will be motivational events throughout the Challenge.”
