The 7 Pillars of Wellness
The border battle challenge addresses all aspects of wellness, including physical, emotional, social, intellectual, environmental, financial and spiritual wellness. Each day of each week, every aspect of wellness will have a challenge.
How to start the challenge!
Download and print the Wellness Wheel to determine what areas of wellness need more emphasis to make your wellness wheel nice and round! If you do not have access to a printer, you can also create your own version!
Join our Southwest Border Battle Facebook Group.This is where the daily challenges you need to complete each day will be posted.
Keep track of your progress each day using the Wellness Tracker! This is how you will track the challenges you have completed, and will need to be turned by Sunday at 5pm each week to SOCOFitnessCaptain@SpecialOlympicsCO.org. You can also post it in the Facebook group!
Prizes will be available to those who complete 35+ daily challenges (out of 42 total days) through the Facebook group and record their results in the tracker.
The “winning” state will be determined by the number of participants who have submitted their wellness trackers for each state (please submit your Wellness Tracker Sunday at 5pm each week to SOCOFitnessCaptain@SpecialOlympicsCO.org).
