SDS Health Trail Teams Place in Top 10 for UT Austin

10 November 2017—Congratulations to Sally Ragsdale, Kristin Harvey and Steven Hernandez, team Rainbow-Ralphing Cats, for placing 4th during the October Health Trails Team competition through the HealthPoint Wellness Program at The University of Texas at Austin.

Sally Ragsdale said of the competition and event, “Although I exercise regularly, keeping track of my daily steps was something I’d never done before. It helped me see how my steps changed over the course of the week and identify days when I had low energy because I wasn’t as active as usual. But the biggest motivation was having a team competition within the department!”

rainbowcatRainbow-Ralphing Cats were part of a 3-way tie for 4th place for the University with Sashay Away and Walking Guardians of the Med Ed Galaxy and were part of the 490 UT Austin participants to log 200 miles or more of activity in October.

The University of Texas System-wide competition ended with UT Austin in a tie for second place with UT Southwestern. SDS came in strong with two top ten finishers in the competition, with team Stat Cat placing 7th overall.
