For those unable to attend our March info sessions, we are extending the Matchbox Education Series to Fridays in April from 12:30-1PM. Also, the Concussion Management Team will host the 3rd Annual Concussion Forum on April 16 at 7:30PM in Science Center 101. See below for details on both programs. This week in our very first newsletter feature, Eric shares his story about his path to physical health and wellness. And finally, a big thank you to the 25 students, faculty, and staff who joined us for our Biometric Screen! We will offer it again in the future.
Be well,Noemí and Eric
The entire Swarthmore community is invited to participate in the First Annual Couch to 5K fun-run. We welcome all levels and ages. This event has a $15 entry fee for non-students to benefit the Philadelphia area Women Against Abuse, a domestic abuse advocate and services provider. It is free for Tri-Co students and people under18. We will be providing vouchers for cost-prohibitive considerations.
Welcome to the first Power Lifting Contest for students! Each participant will have the opportunity to learn about and compete in three lifting exercises: Squat, Bench Press, and Deadlift. Winners will be determined by weight class using the Schwartz/ Malone formula.
Matchbox Education Series
We will be leading 30-minute lessons on equipment usage and gym etiquette during April. The goal is to help reduce barriers that may keep individuals from using the Matchbox, reduce usage anxiety, and introduce gym etiquette. Registration is not required.
