6/05/15 > June 8th Deadline to declare your Challenge!

Just a quick reminder: You have until Monday, June 8, to set your goal for the Summer Wellness Challenge (directions attached).  At that time, the poll on the home page of the wellness portal will switch to the Week One question.  You'll be able to answer this question until noon on the following Monday, June 15.

Please keep in mind that unlike in years past, you will not be able to retroactively log/answer the weekly wellness question.  Weekly questions will change each Monday at noon - those who answer eight out of ten weekly questions will qualify for the $50 cash-out after August 16.

Park Passes and Bear Spray : Once again, the Wellness Department will be distributing $10 bear sprays and $10 Annual GTNP Park Passes.  These will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Wellness Department (first office on the left when you enter the Hospital), starting at 7am on Monday, June 8.  Often, these "sell out" within a few hours; we encourage you to line up early if you're interested.

In order to eligible for a Pass or a Bear Spray you need to have set an Active Trails Wellness goal by Monday 6/8 at 7am.   Please also be willing to log your Active Trails experiences in Grand Teton National Park on the wellness portal this summer.
