Mav-Tracks

What is Mav Tracks?
Mav-Tracks is an incentive program encouraging you to invest in your health and overall wellness. This program will include all aspects of health: physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. Mav-Tracks will provide motivation to better understand wellness and improve behaviors.

Why participate?
The goal for Mav-Tracks is for you to take ownership of a healthy lifestyle. Making a conscious effort toward improving your health now may eliminate or help prevent illness and disease later in life. The purpose is to make wellness fun and lifelong! Recording activities that you participate in makes you more aware of your health behaviors. In no time, these behaviors are part of your everyday routine.

How does it work?
Mav-Tracks rewards you for taking steps toward improved health. In order to qualify, participants must meet 75% of the school year in weeks requirement of getting at least 150 minutes of physical activity a week and eating 5 fruits and veggies/day. The calender is for the phys. activity to record minutes and the other is a check list to check off your fruit and veggie servings.
