GCC competition: overall team and individual winners

With only 10 days left until we reach the Global Corporate Challenge (GCC) finish line on 4 September 2014, we thought we would offer you an extra incentive to motivate you as you head towards the finish line.

We will be awarding prizes to the team and individual who have completed the most steps from the start of the GCC on 28 May 2014 to the finish line on 4 September 2014. Generously sponsored by Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness (SUSF), the winning team will receive five group visit fitness passes for seven people that will also entitle the team to a complimentary SUSF membership to be used within a five week period from the date they receive the prize. The winning individual will win a Fitbit zip wireless activity tracker provided by Safety Health and Wellbeing.

To be in with a chance to win, make sure you enter your steps into the GCC tracker. Winners will be notified by email on 10 September 2014.

Most improved team and individual

To help motivate you to keep moving during the winter months, we had four scrumptious tasting plates from the Forum Restaurant as the prize for the most improved team with the greatest percentage increase in their average step count. The winner was determined from the Administrator’s GCC Leader Board report and we’re pleased announce that This is IT from the Sydney Business School has won the title of most improved team during the period 16 to 30 July.

As an added incentive, we were also looking for the most improved individual participant with the greatest percentage increase in their average step count. The winner of the most improved individual title was also determined from the Administrator’s GCC Leader Board report and we’re pleased to announce that Mark Villar from the vICTims (Information and Communications Technology) has won the title and walked away with a Fitbit.

Congratulations to all the winners and stay tuned to find out more about future competitions.
