In September, we hosted an onsite wellness event, “Fun and Feast in the Sun!” to engage our staff and encourage participation in our wellness program.

20 staff members from Trisco and our sister company, Atlas Building Services, gathered on the front lawn for a friendly competition and cookout. There were three healthy challenges, which everyone participated in to win prizes (and bragging rights).

As you’ll see in the photos above, the challenges were:

A three-legged race for agility and teamwork – Two people each put one leg in a trash bag and ran the distance of the parking lot.

An egg-carrying relay for speed and coordination – Team members carried an egg in a teaspoon while speed-walking through an obstacle course.

Tug of war for strength and teamwork – Teams played tug of war across a pool of water. This was definitely a favorite, even for those who ended up in the pool!

Other activities included corn hole, horseshoe, croquet, frisbee, tip the cup, and basketball. There were plenty of chances to get up and move, and we all did! Afterwards, we had a cookout and everyone brought a healthy dish to share. The spread was impressive, with turkey burgers, sweet potato soup, Waldorf fruit salad, homemade tortilla chips and salsa, skinny seven-layer dip, tomato and avocado salad, bean salad, fruit cake, and more.

Everyone had a great time, and we hope to host another Wellness Event in the future!
