CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College’s Fit for Life Healthy Campus Initiative has announced two new exciting programs designed to promote healthy eating and physical fitness among CCC students, faculty and staff.

Made possible with a grant provided by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation, CCC’s Fit for Life initiative was constructed to foster a campus culture of health and wellness while simultaneously enhancing the quality of life for students and employees through promotional health activities.

The first program, “Quiet Hour” is designed specifically for CCC employees.

Scheduled from 3 to 4 p.m. (Monday-Friday) through April 29, the program gives CCC faculty and staff exclusive use of gym equipment in CCC’s Fitness Center. Employees will also have access to a personal trainer and the opportunity to participate in a free aerobic class.

“We encourage all employees to take advantage of this opportunity to release stress and enhance their quality of life by being more physically active,” said CCC Fit for Life Wellness Education and Activities Coordinator Selina Reid.

A second program, the 5-Day Fitness Fusion Challenge, is designed specifically for students. It is a unique opportunity to promote physical fitness and healthy eating among CCC students. Slated for the week of March 21-26, participants are required to submit “selfies” chronicling their journey through the contest to be eligible to win gift card awards. Fun fitness activities and free healthy snacks are also planned each day to promote wellness among Tigers.

Here’s a breakdown of activities planned for the week (required activities for the challenge are written in bold):

Monday: “Share a Fruit Selfie Challenge” Each student must take a selfie with different individuals sharing a fruit of their choice.
