Baker College of Flint students have won the 4th annual Commit to Fit! College Challenge. The Commit to Fit! College Challenge promotes physical activity in local colleges by giving students the chance to take part in a little “healthy competition.” Throughout the month of February, students from Mott Community College, Baker College of Flint, and the University of Michigan-Flint, strived to achieve 30 minutes of physical activity a day.
Collectively, Flint-area college students logged over 120,000 minutes of activity on commit2fit.com in February. Baker College of Flint students averaged 1,238 minutes of physical activity, equivalent to 43 minutes of activity per day.
The Commit to Fit! College Challenge trophy will be presented to Baker College of Flint students on Thursday, March 10, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. at Baker College of Flint. In addition to the trophy, students that logged over 30 minutes of physical activity per day were entered to win a variety of gift certificates to local businesses as well as cash prizes. Individual winners were announced Thursday, March 3, 2016 on the Commit to Fit! Facebook page.
