2017/04/14 – The Scarlet vs. Gray Showdown Starts May 1 - Human Resources at Ohio State

Coming May 1 - The Scarlet vs. Gray Showdown

YP4H, Ohio State’s employee wellness program, is introducing The Scarlet vs. Gray Showdown – a new physical activity team challenge taking place May 1 – June 25.

Benefits-eligible faculty and staff, and their benefits-enrolled spouses/same sex domestic partners will be randomly split into two teams representing Ohio State’s iconic signature colors and compete head-to-head in a friendly rivalry. The color team with the highest average minutes per participant will be declared this year’s champion and win a coveted YP4H Team Scarlet or Team Gray t-shirt.

Throughout the challenge, participants have the opportunity to earn up to 700 YP4H points and win a Fitbit Blaze. Participants enrolled in an Ohio State medical plan can receive YP4H points towards earning Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) credits, which can help pay for eligible health care expenses. Participants not enrolled in an Ohio State medical plan can earn Amazon gift cards.

Besides rewarding and fun challenges, here are additional ways faculty and staff can get active around campus:
