14th annual Wellness Fair
14th annual Wellness Fair
RAIN or SHINE !
March 22, 2018 — 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Arrillaga Center for Sports and Recreation (341 Galvez Street)
Get there easily by taking a free shuttle from SLAC or Porter Drive. See the schedules.
More and more of us are making wellness a priority, which takes thought, planning, focus, and effort. But wellness shouldn’t be “all work and no play.” So every spring at Stanford, BeWell and the Health Improvement Program reserve a day for our annual celebration of wellness.
You’re all invited and encouraged by Provost Drell (see her letter to staff) to attend the 14th annual Wellness Fair.
The event theme this year is “Creating a Wonderful World”
There will be free activities and giveaways for all attendees, including:
- Free fitness demonstrations: exercises to do at work or home
- Free healthy food samples from Residential & Dining Enterprises
- Free stress balls from BeWell
- Free blood pressure screenings from HIP
Employees can win big prizes for themselves, their work group or their family
In the spirit of creating a wonderful world, and giving back to share wellness throughout our community, we are encouraging Fair attendees to bring in donated items. We will be holding a large raffle, and while every Fair attendee will receive one raffle ticket just by entering the Fair, additional raffle tickets can be earned by donating the items listed below. The more you donate, the more raffle tickets you earn and the better chance you have of winning one of our 4 prize baskets (see below). Here’s how it works:
Donate a book = 1 raffle ticket
Donate 2 cans of food = 1 raffle ticket
Make a BeWell Table Giving Tree pledge = 1 raffle ticket
Donate a coat = 3 raffle tickets
Donate blood (see below) = 3 raffles tickets
Collected items will be donated to Stanford Hospital, Second Harvest Food Bank and One Warm Coat.
Raffle Grand Prizes
Family Night Out basket: $100 AMC gift card; $130 restaurant gift card
Treat Your Team basket: Catered lunch by Lyfe Kitchen for up to 15 people; a Keurig coffee maker for the office
Treat Yourself basket: $200 spa gift card; a Fitbit
Mystery Basket: items revealed on day of event!
Give blood while you’re there
Two blood mobiles will be at the Fair, and employees can register for an appointment.
Check out the Summer Activities Fair
Do you have a school-age child? If so, you know that even though summer is months away, you need to start planning your child’s summer now. WorkLife will be holding its Summer Activities Fair (for parents and guardians of school-age children and teens) in Burnham Pavilion at the same time as the Wellness Fair.
