All those who completed the assessment – including those from other University of Colorado Health and Welfare Trust employers the University of Colorado Hospital and University Physicians Inc. – have been entered to win one of 12 new iPad 2 tablets.

The University of Colorado Denver won the campus participation competition with more than 21 percent of its workforce completing the health assessment. CU Denver employees who took the health assessment also will be eligible to win one of 25 REI gift cards, each worth $50.

Be Colorado will host a celebration from 1 to 3 p.m. Dec. at the CU Denver Terrace Room, 1380 Lawrence St., second floor, Denver.

CU Denver Chancellor Jerry Wartgow, Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer E. Jill Pollock, and Be Colorado Executive Sponsor Marcy Benson will be on hand to select winners of the prizes for participating, recognize CU Denver and help launch the next steps in the Be Colorado wellness journey – wellness week and the Health Through the Holidays campaign.

In preparation for the holidays and the Be Colorado Healthy Through the Holidays Challenge, the celebration also will include great information about holiday finances and creative gift giving, tips for dealing with holiday stress, fitness advice on training during the cold weather months and more.
