Hello Faculty and Staff,
Augsburg Total Wellness is excited to present, in partnership with our friends at the University of St. Thomas, the March Madness Fitness Challenge: Auggies vs. Tommies! Similar to the UST Challenge in years past, we’ve brought back this fun physical activity challenge to help inspire us to be more active and to ignite some healthy competition with our Tommie rivals. The objective is to track the most physical activity points over the course of 4 weeks, with a winner named each week. The institution with the most weekly wins will come out on top in this fitness challenge and earns bragging rights until the next year!
The competition begins on Wednesday, March 1 and ends on Tuesday, March 28.
What: 4 weeks of friendly and healthy competition
Who: Faculty and Staff
When: March 1-March 28, 2017
How: Earn points for every half hour of physical activity you log!
30 minutes of activity = 1 point

Note: Maximum of 14 points per person, per week.
Need an extra incentive? Participants who report their points for all 4 weeks will be entered into a drawing for various prizes.

China has a long, rich music heritage that is well integrated into ancient healing practices. Through visits to Beijing area hospitals, clinics, musical venues, conservatories, and community organizations that provide health related care, students experience the interplay of music and healing practices in China.
This program will also spend several days at a burn camp in Chongqing. This is a free camp designed for children ages 6-18 who have experienced burns, but do not have access to outpatient treatment. The camp helps children develop communication and social skills, confidence, psychological well-being, and physical wound healing
We will also visit other locations of interest such as The Great Wall, Old-Town Beijing, Dazu Rock Carvings, Yangtze River Cruise and more.
This program is designed for Music Therapy students, but would also be of interest to students in pre-med, nursing, psychology, social work, etc.
