Upcoming event recognizes Wellness Challenge participants

February 14, 2017 by  

The Wellness Challenge Celebration is taking place next month. It is presented by the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

The celebration is a roundup of the 5th annual Northern Kentucky Wellness Challenge that was held for six weeks from January 9 to February 17. Teams of from 10 to 15 members were formed and each member made the pledge to take such steps as to increase and track their physical activities, and to up their consumption of water, fruits and vegetables for points. Extra points were added for flu shots, health screenings, and refraining from smoking. The fee to participate was $50 per team.

The celebration is set to start off with a healthy breakfast. There will also be door prizes and raffles. Wellness Awards, prizes and cash awards will be given out to those who participated in the Wellness Challenge – some of the awards are Winning Team, Top-Scoring Individual, and Most Enthusiastic.

Many of the teams participating in the challenge from all over Northern Kentucky including Florence probably distributed T-shirts to their members that were ordered from a local print company.

The Wellness Challenge Celebration will be held at the Newport Aquarium on March 14 from 8:00 to 10:00 am. Admission is $15 for members of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and $30 for nonmembers. Call 859-578-6396 to learn more.
