17th Annual Wellness 5K Run/Walk

On Saturday, October 12, 2019, a hardy and enthusiastic group of students, staff and faculty, gathered with their families and furry friends to participate in WHAM’s annual Wellness 5K Run/Walk.  Temperatures were in the low to mid 30’s with a blustery wind blowing snow, but Scotty kept everyone in good spirits and the hot chocolate, apple cider and coffee warmed everyone up afterward.  Thanks to all who participated!

WHAM’s October Lunch & Learn: Identifying and Managing Seasonal Affective Disorder

Does the upcoming daylight-saving time have you feeling sad?  For some of us, changes in our mood and behaviors during the winter months can mean something more.  Join us at our next WHAM Lunch and Learn on Wednesday, October 23 to learn an overview of the symptoms that are commonly experienced by someone diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and how those symptoms differ from routine changes in mood and behavior in relation to seasonal changes. Behavioral health treatment and resources can assist individuals in preventing, minimizing, and responding to SAD symptoms. Those resources will be reviewed as well as when and how individuals can access them.  Our speaker will be Mary Holland, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Behavioral Health Supervisor for HealthPartners.

Complete the October 23 Lunch and Learn Registration Form.  Lunch will be available at 11:45 a.m. for those who have registered by Monday, October 21.  The event will take place from 12:00-12:50 p.m. in the Weyerhaeuser Boardroom.

New Registration Options

We are excited to pilot some new registration options for our Boot Camp and Circuit Training participants.  We are now offering a Flex Pass and a Semester Pass.

$40 Flex Pass: Allows you to attend any two Boot Camp or Circuit Training classes per week during Session 1 Fall Semester.  If you can only make it to one class one week, you may not go to three classes another week.  Taylor Ulrich is the instructor for both classes.  We will notify him about who has registered for this option.

$80 Semester Pass: Allows you to register once for both Session 1 & 2 of the Fall Semester.  For now, this option is only available to Circuit Training and Boot Camp participants.

The standard 6-session classes have a registration fee of $25 for faculty and staff. If a class meets more than that, the registration fee may be higher and is noted by the class description.  If classes do not have the mandatory minimum enrollment (10 or more people), the class may be cancelled.  You will be notified and refunded if we cancel the class.  Please note:  Refunds are only available up to the first day of class, with no exceptions.
