Psych faculty claim competition prize

A team of psychologists took the penultimate prize in the Let’s Get Moving Virtual Team Challenge, now entering its final week.

The competition encourages staff and faculty to exercise during the social isolation of working from home, equating each 10 minutes of physical activity to a two-metre climb of well-known buildings and mountains.

Random prize draws for participants each Tuesday will culminate May 12 with final awards for most creative team name and highest per capita climb. More than 60 teams of up to six members each have signed on.

The Standard Deviations — Annette Dufresne, Patti Fritz, Josée Jarry, Onawa Labelle, Carlin Miller and Jill Singleton-Jackson — won a gift pack from the Alumni Association in the May 5 draw. Each will receive a tote bag filled with branded swag: a T-shirt, notebook, insulated water bottle, and set of coasters.
