2014 H+P Christmas Party

The Health and Performance holiday party is almost upon us!  Here are the details:

  • Monday December 8th at 6:30pm.  There will be an easy workout at this time (optional), or you can come straight to the party!
  • ROOM 200 of the Waterloo Rec Complex
  • It's a potluck, so bring something if you can/want to.  The best dish as voted by the members will get a NEW JACKET from our friends at New Balance Canada.  
  • Some sort of holiday attire (ugly sweaters, Santa hats, etc)!  The favorite female and male outfit will get a small prize from our friends at NB.
  • We will be voting for our 2014 H+P Team MVPs at the party (one male, one female)!  If you would like to vote before the party, let us know.
  • As described on our website HERE, the MVP award is given to the athlete who displays excellence in team dedication, athletic performance/improvement, team spirit, and who has had the most positive impact on their fellow H+P teammates.  
  • There will be a 50/50 draw that will hopefully help to cover some of the cost of the room rental (and give one H+P-er a nice cash prize)!
  • There will be games, relay races and more!  All of these competitions will have small prizes available from our friends at New Balance Canada!
  • Make sure you come ready to compete, eat, and have fun!
