    Do you and your teammates need some extra motivation? In honor of getfit@mit’s tenth anniversary, we'll be having a special team-prize drawing during the week in which getfit@mit members reach a cumulative total of 10 million minutes. To be eligible, EVERY member of your team needs to meet that week’s exercise goal. But since we don't know exactly which week it will be, you'll need to be on your toes to keep hitting the weekly goals! Every member of the winning team will receive a $50 gift certificate to Foundry on Elm.
