District’s One Ton Challenge Losses Make for a Winning Workforce

    More than 125 Oakland Schools’ employees slimmed down during the district-wide Let’s Lose a Ton Challenge, shedding more than 1,000 pounds in just three months. The competition, which kicked off just after the New Year, was hosted by the district’s Wellbeing Committee in conjunction with Ulliance.


    Ulliance staff members met with Oakland Schools’ employees to provide direct support, access to a dietitian and exchange recipes.
