By Jerry Phelps
NIEHS celebrated its annual Health and Fitness Week May 22-25 with an expanded array of activities thanks to a dedicated planning committee and group of volunteers. New events included an in-line skate party and a golf outing. Returning favorites included the Rogathon five-kilometer run and one-mile walk, a table tennis tournament, basketball shootout and 3 on 3 tournament, jump rope and Hula Hoop competitions, and Frisbee and football tosses. Representatives of health insurance and wellness organizations also exhibited in the Mall.
The planning committee included Diane Crawford of the Administrative Services and Analysis Branch, and Vivi Shropshire, Chris Hunt, Bill Fitzgerald, and Scott Merkle of the Health and Safety Branch. Results and pictures Lorie Boyd of the Comparative Medicine Branch andof the various events are below. Terry Wells, a contractor with Johnson Controls, enjoyed a fun and beautiful day for golf at The Crossings.
