Join the 2017 Community Wellness Challenge

by Andrew Laker | Mar 16, 2017

Are you ready to revamp those New Year’s resolutions to live healthier in 2017? You are not alone. In fact 80% of us have given up on our resolutions already. Healthy Communities has organized a FREE month-long Wellness Challenge (April 1-30th) to help you reset and begin living healthy again. This challenge will help you develop and maintain healthy habits and overall well-being. The emphasis on purpose, nutrition, activity and mindfulness will engage you and inspire you to become happier, healthier and more energetic. You can also win fun prizes!

Click here to download the Challenge Packet or email Healthy Communities at healthycommunities@crh.org. You can also pick up the packet at WellConnect (237 Washington Street) after March 22, 2017.

Columbus Regional Health employees participated in a pilot Wellness Challenge, and Healthy Communities received a variety of great comments:

  • Thank you for this Wellness challenge! It is nice to have a reminder to focus on purpose and mindfulness, but it was especially nice to know that my co-workers were on the path as well. It made the whole endeavor more fun, to know that we are focused as a group. Thank you for the encouragement! - Rebecca Patton
  • The CRH Wellness Challenge was great! Not only did it inspire me to get back on track, my boyfriend has gotten off the couch and started walking too. Now, let me tell you that is a MIRACLE! - Sandra Haworth
