Touring Texas for the Stuart Place staff was not about tasting regional cuisine, seeing wild flowers or visiting the Gulf Coast. It was the theme of a health and wellness competition that came to an end earlier this week with 56 staff members earning over 39,000 miles.
Participants formed teams and kept work out logs throughout the competition with each minute of exercise equaling one mile of travel. The winning team and the individual winner received prizes, including snacks provided by Ivan Anaya at Walgreens; fruit provided by Stuart Fit for Life team; water and cap provided by Maggie and Ray Rodriguez; HCISD bag, t-shirts, and a one month pass to Valley Baptist Fitness Center provided by HCISD Wellness coordinator Luis Solorio; and five jean passes and a one hour gift of time passes provided by Mrs. Alejandra Lara and Mrs. Dawn Burback!
The top individuals were Mary Jane Trevino with 2,580 miles, Peter Martinez with 2,745 miles and Laura Pena with 7,005 miles.
