Congratulations to our Amazing Race 2012 grand prize winners the Lovely Liu Ladies of the Liu Institute for Global Issues. We look forward to hosting the next Amazing Race in 2014.
Staff and faculty compete in teams to earn points for activities in five dimensions of wellness: physical activity, nutrition, intellectual, psychological and social/community. These challenges can include anything from eating fruits and vegetables to completing a Sudoku puzzle. You may already be completing some of the included activities on a daily basis.
Why not join your colleagues in a challenge to improve health and wellness among staff and faculty at UBC?
If you are interested in participating or becoming a Team Captain, email Miranda Massie.
The 2012 Amazing Race Health Challenge once again had terrific participation. Over 300 staff and faculty members from UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan participated on over 30 teams. Competiton was stiff but in the end every participant was a winner in health. 53% of our evaluation survey respondents (155 total respondents) indicated that the race had helped them make lasting changes to their nutritional, physical and intellectual wellness.

Participation in the 2010 Amazing Race Health Challenge was phenomenal, with over 550 staff and faculty accepting the challenge (a 19% increase from 2009). Forty percent of the participants (223 participants) responded to the evaluation survey and more than half of those reported that they are likely to make lasting changes to their nutritional, physical and intellectual wellness thanks to the Amazing Race Health Challenge.
