March Madness is the #1 sporting event in the US, so let’s go along for the ride and get fit along the way.
Here’s how it works:
- Sign up beginning February 14 in the Health & Fitness Center
- Challenge begins on March 1 and ends on April 2
- Teams are assigned randomly, and team names have been chosen from the Sweet Sixteen finals for the NCAA March Madness 2017. If you want your friends or family on your team, you must register together.
- Take a March Madness calendar where all the activities are listed. Complete the day’s challenge and have a fitness staff member record your points in the March Madness binder. (Be sure to check which days have bonus points, including wellness program attendance.)
- Each team accumulates points. After the second week, teams are reduced to the Elite Eight, then the Final Four, etc.
- Even if your team is not moving forward, you can! Your incentive besides getting in better shape? There is an overall MVP, and it could be you!
National Champion: Commemorative T-shirt and insulated water bottles for the entire team
2nd Place: $25 Y Bucks (toward any purchase at the Y for the entire team
3rd Place: Y coffee cups with morning health snacks for breakfast-on-the-go for the entire team
MVP – Individual who scores the most points from ANY TEAM: Prize Basket ($100 value)
When you volunteer at the Y, you become a bigger part of the community. Join us as we partner with the Homeless Bus. The goal? To prepare 150 sandwiches for delivery to those who are homeless in New York City. Please register by March 12.
The history of the Homeless Bus began in 1992 when Director, Mark Landgrebe, attended an Anthony Robbins seminar in Hawaii and he heard about a program that helped feed needy families on holidays, prompting him into action. At first, Mark delivered food only on holidays, but he quickly realized that holidays weren’t enough and that these people were in need of assistance every day. Lacking the funds to aid them daily, Mark, and his wife Anna, settled on Saturday night deliveries and they have consistently visited these people weekly ever since, logging in over two decades of visits. On most trips into NYC, they serve a meal usually consisting of, Cup-O-Noodles soup, turkey and cheese sandwiches, hot chocolate, water, cookies, and other various snacks.
