What's New at IBEW 494
2nd Annual Weight Loss Challenge

WELLNESS COMMITTEE

I want to start by saying Happy New Year to all my 494 brothers and sisters.  I hope you have a great holiday season. 

As we begin 2015, the Wellness Committee wants to encourage active family-friendly events throughout the year for our members and their families and we’re asking for your suggestions. Your input is highly appreciated. 

February 5th from 4-7, we will hold the weigh-in for our 2nd annual 12 week Weight Loss Challenge which is open to 494 members and their families. Challenge categories will be the same as last year; greatest weight loss by an individual male/female, teams of four and children 17 and younger. Final weigh-ins will be held May 1st thru May 6th, 2015, and the winner’s will be announced on Thursday May 7th during the General Membership union meeting.

In addition we will have NURTUR on site to do full body assessments if you wish. They will check your cholesterol, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and weight.  If you plan to participate in the full body assessment, please let me know so we can make sure NURTUR has enough staff on site. Each assessment will take about 15 minutes. Prizes for the challenge will be announced in the February newsletter and on the 494 web page.

On March 21st, Local 494 will be sponsoring members for the American Lung Association’s Fight for Air Climb at the US Bank building (1034 steps).  We invite you to be part of team IBEW and to challenge yourself, your coworkers, spouse, and kids. This will undoubtedly be a fun experience.

Local 494 is also looking for participants for potential team sponsorship opportunities:
-    The Spartan obstacle race at Miller Park on May 23rd
-    Any other team sport or activity that you might participate in 
All you have to do is put together a team, and the Wellness Committee will consider sponsoring it.   
Please contact Business Rep. Robert Turner at 414-327-5202 or email: bob@ibew494.com with any questions.
