WellAware - Participant Testimonials
"As my children grew up and started their own lives, I found that I was not active without their activities, etc. I began having small health problems so I began taking advantage of the University's free programs and became involved in Weight Watchers at Work. I also belong to the BG Community Center. I have found that I am most successful if there are set programs that I can attend such as the free employee fitness classes and the walking classes that have been offered in the past. The best advice I can give is to take advantage of the opportunities on campus and if it's easier and more motivating, get a group of people together!" - Debra McLean
