What will I receive for participating in a LiveWell Fit event?
Covered participants who have 1.) Pre-registered with the event organizer, 2.) Notified the Trust at least one week before the event, and 3.) Signed a reimbursement form at the event will receive a fee reimbursement check in the mail for up to four events per calendar year. Be sure to keep your registration receipt after registering with the event organizer. Fees are different for different events, so your reimbursement will vary.
In addition, we offer several mile marker rewards for participating. You can receive mile marker rewards as you participate in events. After completing your first event, you will be at your first mile marker, and you will receive a LiveWell branded water bottle. Completing your second event will put you at your second mile marker and earns you a technical fabric t-shirt. Once you have completed your third event and reached your third mile marker, you’ll receive reimbursement for a fifth bonus LiveWell Fit event. Finally, when you participate in your fourth event and meet your fourth mile marker you will have the choice of receiving either a Garmin Forerunner 15 GPS Fitness Monitor, a Fitbit, an iPod Nano or reimbursement for a pair of new running/biking shoes (some limitations apply). Each calendar year, you are eligible to be reimbursed for up to four LiveWell Fit events, however, each mile marker reward is earned only once and does not start over each calendar year.
What is the Bring a Buddy program and how does it work?
If a covered Trust employee or covered spouse who has not participated in a LiveWell Fit event before registers for the same LiveWell Fit event as you as your “buddy,” you both will be entered in the Bring a Buddy raffle for the chance to win a $300 VISA gift card. You can be entered to win up to four times for bringing first time LiveWell Fit Trust participants to up to four LiveWell Fit events (you are eligible for one entry per event even if you bring multiple buddies). To be eligible you must both be registered, you must both notify the Trust a week before the event and you must both participate in the event. Please note that to be entered to win, participants must be 18 years or older.
