5 to Thrive Quarterly Prize Drawings:

In addition to the rewards above that you can earn, we thought it'd be fun to keep the momentum going with prize drawings - a little competition is a healthy motivator! Each drawing will have ten (10) winners of a $250 e-gift card to a health & wellness related store of their choice. Drawings will be held in July, October and December. The more 5 to Thrive healthy areas you complete ("complete" means 5 out of 10 items), the more chances you will earn:

  • Complete 1 well-being area = 1 chance
  • Complete 2 well-being areas = 5 chances
  • Complete 3 well-being areas = 10 chances
  • Complete 4 well-being areas = 15 chances
  • Complete 5 well-being areas = 25 chances (maximum)

Winners will choose from stores such as: Apple, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Dick's Sporting Goods, Dunham's Sports, New Balance, Top Golf, Trader Joe's, Under Armour, The Vitamin Shoppe, and Whole Foods. 

There are a few rules:

  1. You can only win one prize per year - but that doesn't mean you should stop participating in 5 to Thrive! Keep up the good work!
  2. You must have earned your chances by the following deadlines to be in the prize drawing(s):
    • July drawing: June 30, 2021
    • October drawing: September 30, 2021
    • December drawing: December 10, 2021
  3. If you don't win, you're still in! If you don't win a quarterly prize, your earned chances roll over to the next quarterly drawing! Example: If by June 30 you completed 2 well-being areas, you have earned 5 chances into the July drawing. If you do not win in July, those 5 chances carry over to the October drawing. If by September 30 you completed 2 more well-being areas (4 areas total for the year so far), you have 15 chances into the October drawing.
  4. Pick your Prize! Wellness Warriors administration will contact you via your accessID@wayne.edu e-mail if you win and you'll pick what $250 e-gift card you'd like.
