May 4, 2011

The second fitness challenge sponsored by Healthy UNH saw 64 teams made up of 232 people exercising for 161,039 minutes. The campus-wide event had participants trying to see who could exercise the most in a 30-day period.

Healthy UNH initiative partners with USNH and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care to help employees become better educated about health and health costs while highlighting available resources.
