Financial fitness challenge: My Wellness points and weekly giveaway available

The way we manage and engage with our finances can significantly influence our physical, mental and social health. Robust financial health often translates to reduced stress, enhanced goal attainment and increased freedom to explore opportunities.

Now is a great time to boost your financial literacy and attitude towards money to make smart decisions around spending, saving and investing.

The goal of Marquette’s financial fitness challenge is to complete one activity each week throughout the four-week challenge. Participants will learn how to take control of their money through weekly topics that include budgeting, understanding your debt, saving and investing, and financial goal planning.

Registration opens Monday, July 8. The challenge runs Monday, July 15, through Sunday, Aug. 11. Record one activity for each week by Tuesday, Aug. 13, to receive 25 My Wellness points.

How am I eligible for My Rewards points and chances for giveaway prizes?

The goal is to complete at least one activity each week. Participants who meet the goal throughout the entire four-week challenge will be awarded 25 My Rewards points. Participants who log one activity in a week will also be entered into the weekly prize giveaway (the week ends each Sunday at 7 p.m.). The challenge will be held Monday, July 15, through Sunday, Aug. 11.
