2021 ARTA Wellness Challenge Results

Just when we thought that COVID-19 was over and we could start enjoying our regular physical activities at our recreation centres and classes, we were shut down once again. Finding alternative ways to stay physically active did not seem to pose an issue for the members who participated in the annual wellness challenge. From gardening to tai-chi, our members tallied over half a million minutes spent on physical activity.

Results of the Wellness Challenge

  • Reporting 11,281 minutes, Mike Romano from the Calgary Retired Teachers’ Association won the Individual Winner Award.
  • The Okanagan Alberta Retired Teachers’ Association received the Branch Participation award with just over twenty per cent of their members participating.
  • The Calgary Retired Teachers’ Association submitted the most minutes with a total of 203,719 — a stellar performance.

Prizes were handed out to the top performers and twelve randomly selected participants from the many submissions from members who either do not belong to a branch or whose branches opted out of the challenge this year.

Stay tuned for exciting updates on the 2022 Wellness Challenge.
