Start a group “booster break” with colleagues in your area for a chance to win a free lunch for your group! Last year’s winners from GatorWell are pictured at right.

Here’s how to participate:

  1. Establish a regularly occurring booster break with colleagues in your area. See last September’s issue of UF at Work for inspiration from your fellow employees.
  2. If you are planning on physical activity for your group, visit the UFHR website for guidelines on group fitness, along with a waiver form for your group’s participants to complete.
  3. Submit your entry to by Friday, Sept. 29, to be entered into a drawing to win lunch for your group (up to 20 group participants). Include the information below in your submission:
  • What? Describe the activities you engage in as a group.
  • When? Provide how often and at what time you meet (e.g., daily from 10:30-10:45 a.m., weekly from 3-3:10 p.m.).
  • Where? Tell us where your group meets.
  • How? Provide a picture of your group on break together.
