Studies have shown that engaging in physical activity can help students improve their grades and achieve higher in the classroom. That’s the premise behind Wellness USF’s P.A.S.S.Port to Wellness: Physical Activity for Student Success.
P.A.S.S.Port to Wellness is a week-long journey to wellness filled with fun events and the ability to earn prizes along the way. Participation is simple. Just go to an event and pick up you P.A.S.S.Port and get it stamped to earn a prize from that event. Attend more events and earn more prizes!
If your week is jam-packed and you can’t make it out to as many of the scheduled events as you would like, don’t fret! Just take a photo of yourself doing a similar physical activity and share it to #USFPTW to earn a stamp for that event.
The prizes don’t stop there. Enter our photo contest to win more prizes and gift cards. It’s easy! Just share a picture (or more, if you want) of you and your friends getting active on Twitter of Instagram using #USFPTW. Keep in mind that if you have a private profile, we won’t be able to view your photo, so make sure to make it public beforehand. The top three photos will be shared by Wellness USF on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and the photo with the most retweets, favorites, and likes will win the grand prize: a $20 gift card to Chuck’s Natural Food Market. All entries must be submitted by noon on January 31, and the winner will be announced February 5, so get active and start sharing!
