Mark LaFortune presents awards to Patty Corrente and Christian Meagher – 2015 Healthy Team Champs!

It seems somewhat fitting that the 2015 Community Corporate Cup Healthy Team Champs are from Griffin Hospital. Patty Corrente and Christain Meagher topped a field of 38 teams to walk away with first place with a total of 173 points. BIC’s Victoria Olveson and Sarah Donaldson had 160 points in second place.

In their first year in the event, People’s United pulled out third place behind Joseph Perun and Therese Camille with 137 points. The fourth through seventh places were separated by only six points with Barbara Moore and Bryan Sapione of the Y edging out BIC’s Evely Spanolios and Pina Dinuzzio by a single point for fourth place!

Breakfast-007

pretest

Patty Corrente and Christian Meagher of Griffin Hospital were the first to complete this year’s Healthy Team Pre-Test.

The Corporate Cup “Healthy Team” event is designed to promote your healthy lifestyle changes while allowing your company to receive recognition for encouraging these changes. As an added benefit, each Healthy Team participant receives a three-month membership (over $200 value) to the Valley YMCA for the duration of the Healthy Team competition.

Guidelines:

Have all forms completed prior to arriving for the pre-test on February 23 or February 25.

Each participating company will choose the desired number of two-person teams to participate in this event. Points will be awarded for certain healthy behaviors and for measured, positive physical changes, and for participating in other healthy events scheduled throughout the three-month competition. The key to choosing those participants “most likely to succeed” in this event is to find those who are the most highly-motivated to make healthy lifestyle changes.

There are six requirements for each team member to participate:

1.)   A written physician’s consent is required for each participant prior to the initial screening.

2.)   Each participant must go through an initial health screening and a final health screening. Refrain from eating for one hour prior to testing.

 3.)  Each Healthy Team must participate in at least one additional Corporate Cup event.

 4.)  Each participant must exercise three times weekly for a minimum of 30 minutes. An exercise diary will be provided at the pre-test. Participants are permitted to exercise at their own gym or fitness facility.

5.)  Each participant must participate in at least one Healthy Meal and maintain a food diary for a minimum of three consecutive days each month for the duration of the event. A food diary will be provided at the pre-test.

6.)  Each participant must complete a Participant Contract, to be submitted at post-testing. Healthy Team Physical Fitness Evaluation All Healthy Team participants are required to have a health screening prior to and upon completion of the event.
