Traveling? 7 Holiday Workout Tips
With food, travel and fun on our minds during the holiday season, it's often easy to forget about our workout routines. With a bit of proactive planning, Active.com gives 7 ways to sneak in a holiday workout:
  1. Do a condensed-but-intense 30 minute workout including stretches, jogging in place,
    jumping jacks, crunches and etc.
  2. Rehearse your routine before you travel.
  3. Flight delayed? Get active by walking the terminals in airports.
  4. Pack some fitness reminders in your luggage like workout videos, walking shoes,
    motivational CD's and etc.
  5. Bring a jump rope or climb flights of stairs
  6. Involve the whole family in yoga or tai chi
  7. Gradually ease back into your pre-holiday routine

Collecting Corks
The Rad Tech program has collected over 12,000 corks, caps and foil from wine bottles for Clothes for Souls. Each is worth 2 cents so we can financially support this global non-profit institution dedicated to fighting poverty. Besides helping the charity, it also helps the earth. The corks are recycled and not put in landfills. Did you know that it takes over 1,500 gallons of water to grow the cotton required for just one pair of jeans and each American discards over 65 pounds of clothing per year? Help us by continuing to donate your corks! Drop off is in bldg. 200, room 245. 
Collecting Aluminum Can Tabs
The Future Cardiovascular Technologist Club and the Association for Radiologic Technologist are collecting can tabs. One gallon of tabs equals a one night stay in the Ronald McDonald House for a family. Together, we've already collected eight gallons, but we can do more! Help us by bringing your aluminum can tab donations to room 121, 245 or 133 in bldg. 200. Thank you!
