OCU Fitness Challenges

Instagram Photo Contest

OCU Wellness hosted a virtual wellness week via Instagram in July! Staff and faculty were encouraged to share how they'd been living well this summer. Each day of the week had a different theme: #okcumove, #okcugo, #okcunom, and #okcufun.

At the end of the week, the Wellness Champions got together to pick a winner based on creativity, originality, style, and other factors. The four winning posters each received a 23-oz. insulated tumbler. The overall grand prize winner received an Up Move wireless activity tracker by Jawbone.

We loved scrolling through each post to check out how our colleagues keep moving, get going, eat healthy, and have fun during the summer! To check out all of the Wellness Week posts, search #okcuwellness. And, feel free to help yourself to our hashtag as you practice wellness throughout the year!  

The judges had a tough job picking the top posts for each day. We're happy to announce the winners!
