Laura Wishik won the big prize, a $400 Southwest Airlines ticket at the raffle for those with the most stars. Laura won her stars by designing and successfully continuing her weight loss program over the year. Trudy Rosemarin won a large emergency kit backpack. Trudy became a top star winner through exercise, sharing her walks in Center Forest Park with other walkers and volunteering for SUV. Patte Wagner, manager of the Puget Sound Credit Union and Kristen Church of Sawbones also won emergency backpacks. These grab and go packs were donated by the Medical Reserve Corps and Puget Sound Energy. They earned their stars by successfully completing the 10,000 step challenge.
Of the 20 teams that started the Challenge, requiring 30 minutes of exercise, or 10,000 steps 5 days a week, for three weeks, 8 teams successfully completed the Challenge with all their team members finishing. These 8 teams entered a raffle. The winners were, Sawbones Team led by Diane Guthrie, Team True Value, led by John Yates and the Vashon Dental Team, led by Jill Yates. Now THERE is a competitive couple! They won an SUV bag full of goodies including vouchers for the Vashon Athletic Club for day passes, a month’s membership, and an hour with a trainer.
