Prizes ranging from $100 to $1000 where awarded to every participating unit. This year’s award winners included a four way tie for first place with a prize of $1000 each, for MACS-2, MWSD-31, CLC-23, and 6th MCD.
The Semper Fit Summer Challenge is a health and wellness extravaganza of games, training, races, movies, and various other fun activities. Units participating in the SFSC were able to accrue points throughout the summer by participating in events for the chance to win money for their unit. The money is put into their Unit Funds to be used at the CO’s discretion. Semper Fit was excited for all the units participating this summer and had a blast at each event!
I had an opportunity to speak with Kathy Williams, the Health Promotions Coordinator for Semper Fit and the Summer Challenge organizer. She was thrilled with the participation this summer from the movies to the 5K runs. She said, “My favorite event this year, the dodge ball game, the Marines loved it, and it was so exciting! That, and the Character runs, it is always interesting to see everyone come out, in character or out. It is just so much fun!”
