As we begin yet another new year, WellSpan Health and community partners are kicking off the 2nd Annual Winter STREAK program on January 3rd to help you start off 2022 on the right foot. For many individuals, their New Year’s resolution is to make healthier choices or lose weight. If you are one of these individuals, Winter STREAK can help you stick with your resolution for good.
Winter STREAK is a wellness program that takes place from Monday, January 3rd – Friday, March 25th and is open to anyone who wants to participate. It features six workshops, tips, and many resources to help you keep up a “streak” of healthy eating, and physical and mental well-being activities. Participants of the program can learn about physical activity, healthy eating, and stress management during the winter months.
The program also offers chances to earn prize baskets throughout the three months, which anyone is eligible to do, no matter what time you join in the program period. You have multiple opportunities to earn entries and the more you participate the more entries you earn.
At the end of the three-month challenge, a drawing will be held to award prizes.
