1/19/2011 - SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. -- The Health and Wellness Center will host a March Madness competition, a four-week healthy eating incentive program with a basketball theme, mixing the love of sport and food into an exciting, motivational competition. The program starts March 3. As a part of the program, the HAWC will host a food demonstration about healthy lunches during the work day on March 17.

Individuals will shoot for 100 points a week through choosing foods and practicing nutrition skills that contribute toward good health. For making simple choices, you can score one, two, and three point baskets.

Individuals will turn in their score sheets on April 1 when the HAWC wraps up the competition with a game of "Knock Out" at the James Gym.

Everyone who completes the competition will receive a March Madness cookbook. Join us for a little fun this March, in developing new habits for a healthier you.

The HAWC will have sign up booths around Scott the week prior to the event and to assist with sign ups you can also call the HAWC.
