The Beavers “Out Pledged” the Ducks

We pitted Ducks against Beavers to see which group of fans could get more pledges to incorporate healthy activities into their routine, and the response was huge! Thousands of fans of the University of Oregon and Oregon State University pledged to eat healthfully, get active, kick tobacco, or take part in stress management activities. But since this was a Civil War competition, only one school could take the honor of the healthiest school, and this year the Beavers took the crown!

Here’s a breakdown of the results: 

Here’s where the competition gets heart-warming; for every pledge made, PacificSource gave a dollar to a charity of your choice. People could select from the following:

  • Boys and Girls Club of Emerald Valley (Eugene)
  • Mid-Willamette Family YMCA (Albany)
  • Eugene YMCA (Eugene)
  • Linn Benton Food Share (Corvallis)

While all four received a lot of support (and money), the charity that landed the most support was the Linn Benton Food Share in Corvallis. A huge congratulations to the Linn Benton Food Share and the all the Beavers that took the pledge.

Thanks to everyone who pledged to live a healthy life – Ducks, Beavers, or otherwise. By getting proactive with your health, you’re making Oregon a better place to live.
