As our mission states, we are working every day to improve the health and well-being of our community. We know that this is difficult, so we’ve developed fun, interactive wellness challenges to give our communities the tools they need to make important lifestyle changes. Every challenge offers:
This is an individual physical activity challenge created to encourage participants to log the recommended 10,000 steps every day (or equivalent amount of other activities) or 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity every week. Typically, Rock the Walk is an eight-week challenge with weekly prizes awarded to active participants.
The next Rock the Walk challenge will take place in the fall of 2016.
The Slimdown Challenge has been a community favorite over the past few years and has generated major results! The goal is to healthfully reduce weight and improve overall health over eight weeks. Participants are required to attend official weigh-in and weigh-out sessions to be eligible for prizes; the most important prize being a healthier, more active lifestyle!
The 2016 Slimdown Challenge runs from Tuesday, April 12th through Tuesday, June 7th. Weigh-outs will take place throughout Jefferson County on Monday, June 6th and Tuesday, June 7th. A schedule of Community and Hospital weigh-outs will be posted at FortHealthCare.com/Slimdown.
The challenge is hosted online. For those participating, log in to your Cerner account now to complete your tasks at FortHealthCare.MyCernerWellness.com.
