Eighth annual Kick Axe Wellness Challenge: March 14 to April 17, 2022

Welcome to the Kick Axe Wellness Challenge! This five-week challenge is focused on using SFA’s Seven Dimensions of Wellness to promote a healthier lifestyle. Teams of four compete in a little friendly competition and earn points by completing weekly tasks. These teams can consist of faculty members, staff and students.

Getting Started (registration open Jan. 10 through March 4)

Quick and easy registration

Registering a team: Only one form is needed for each team.

Keeping Score with Scorecards

Each team must have a team captain who is responsible for encouraging fellow members to submit weekly scorecards and serving as the point of contact during the challenge. The challenge is about earning individual points, but your participation also counts towards your team's total.

A scorecard will be sent out at the beginning of the week and should be submitted individually each week by Wednesday at noon. If you submit your scorecard on time, you will receive an extra 5 points for the week. If your entire team submits on time, it will receive an extra 20 points. Team captains will be informed if the scorecard is missing anything – we want you to get every last point you've earned.
