RIT's Center for Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation's second annual Health Challenge and its impact on the rest of the campus sparked the idea of inviting Staley. “This challenge is to help students set realistic goals for fitness, nutrition and wellness,” says Michelle Blinnd, wellness program specialist at RIT.

While 70 more students signed up for the health challenge during winter quarter, other students, faculty and staff have asked for assistance with their health goals.
