Want another way to earn a coin? Texas A&M Health is conducting a study of geocachers to see how often they cache and if it is a good way to exercise, advantages of metal and physical health are examined as well. Must participate in the study for a whole year in order to receive the coin.

Seemed interesting so I am posting on HGCS. Thanks to MuddyWaterGirl aka Ruthie Ames for bringing the study to light on facebook..

Here is the link!!

OK, I signed up. They say you can quit at any time or not answer any questions you don't care to. The survey was just general physical activity questions and only took me 5 minutes or so to answer online. Easy peasy!

Yep.  I was going to reply that they might want to bcc the email addresses in the future.  I didn't know my email was going to be shared with everyone in the study and I'm not sure anyone else did either.

I guess I am not in the study any more.  I got an e-mail this morning claiming they wanted to recall the message I received yesterday.  Anybody else get that message?

Little late for this. 

 

Center for Community Health Development would like to recall the message, "Geocaching for Exercise and Activity Research Study".
