More than 2,700 Postal Service employees participated in the Worldwide Wellness challenge, an initiative that demonstrated how small steps can lead to big, positive changes.
The challenge, conducted in cooperation with the Government Employees Health Association, ran from Sept. 13-Oct. 24.
The goal was to encourage healthy behaviors as participants virtually traveled the globe and used the Worldwide Wellness website and mobile app to track exercise steps, access healthy recipes, answer trivia questions and support one another on message boards.
The Postal Service’s top five individual performers were Regina Montalvo, a Lake Havasu City, AZ, city carrier assistant (first place); Tracy Robinson, a Harrisburg, PA, address management systems technician (second place); Michelle Dressler, also a Harrisburg address management systems technician (fourth place); and Christina Dolce, a Windsor, CO, rural carrier (fifth place).
An employee who requested anonymity finished in third place.
The top five teams that participated were Sole Suckers, Harrisburg, PA (first place); Cirque du Sore Legs, Columbus, OH (second place); Regerts!, which had members from facilities in Bellmawr, NJ, Woodstown, NJ, and Wilmington, DE (third place); S.C.A.R., Cincinnati, OH (fourth place); and We the Ones, whose members work at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC (fifth place);
