UW-Green Bay 2019 Bellin Run Corporate Team

Run Phoenix, Run

There are 18 UW-Green Bay employees on the Bellin Run corporate team this year. The 43rd annual Bellin Run takes place Saturday, June 8, 2019 in Green Bay. The team t-shirts were designed by UW-Green Bay student Jenna Bares and Alex Reichenberger (Fitness Coordinator). The T-shirts were purchased through a wellness grant from the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF). Team members are Thomas Caldie, Laxmi Chataut, Kate Burns, Jana Fogaca, Jamel Heim, Desiree Kittle, Sarah Locke, James Marker, Ryan Martin, Donna Mleziva, Dan Moore, Nate Rusch, Joan Schaller, Barb Tomashek-Ditter, Molly Vandervest, Kimberly Vlies, Crystal Williams and John Zimonick.

Interested in taking part in a run/walk team?

The UW-Green Bay Run/Walk Team for employees kicked off at the Couch to 5K Lunch ‘n Learn on March 6, 2019. The goal is to offer opportunities for employees to train together, share helpful tips and encouragement, provide incentives and participate in runs/walks together. The team will be gearing up for the first event — the Phoenix 5K on April 27, 2019 on the Green Bay campus, to be followed by the Cellcom 5K on May 18 and Bellin Run 10K on June 8.

  • First 50 employees who sign up get a “Run Like A Phoenix” running hat!
  • Registration fee discounts available for certain area runs/walks.
  • Idea to have group runs/walks on UW-Green Bay campus trails around 5 p.m. on Mondays or Tuesdays.
  • Practical tips and encouragement will be shared with group periodically as we train for upcoming events.

Interested? Please email wellness@uwgb.edu to sign up!

A bang-up Bellin: Terrific turnout and a 15th-place finish for UW-Green Bay

UW-Green Bay’s Bellin Run Corporate Challenge team placed No. 15 out of 67 teams from area companies during Saturday’s (June 14) 38th annual 10K run/walk event. Organized by the University’s Wellness Committee, the Corporate Challenge team consisted of more than 50 UW-Green Bay employees and family members who participated in this year’s Bellin.
