A ten-person team representing MUS Employee Benefits took the top spot in the BCBSMT Community Wellness Challenge! The Challenge, sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield Montana, was a 10-week activity based competition in which teams used Fitbits to compile active minutes with an opportunity to win money for the local charity of their choice.
The MUS team chose the Myrna Loy Center in Helena as the recipient of the charitable contribution.
“This is exactly the intent of the Community Wellness Challenge. Not only is it a way to promote an active and healthy lifestyle, it’s a means to give back to our communities and make a real difference.”
- BCBSMT President Mike Frank
Team MUS racked up 95,424 active minutes over the course of the challenge, and accepted the winning check at the 2015 Governor’s Cup in Helena. The team was made up of Mary Lachenbruch, Leah Tietz, Jessie Bliss, Ruth Anne Hansen, Connie Welsh, Jane Liedle, Laurie Tobol, Sandy Matule, Elaine Gingery and Chelsi Dupler.
It was an awesome 10 week challenge and we are so excited that we pulled out the win as the St. Peter’s Hospital team was on our tails.

Congrats Team MUS!
