Getting Healthy Could Get You to Music City.

The Independent Health and Buffalo Bills Health & Wellness Challenge is back!

This six-week program is designed to reward you for your healthy habits and keep you motivated with a set of daily goals and “extra points” challenges. Prizes are awarded each week during the Challenge, as well as the grand prize: A trip for two to Nashville, Tennessee, including hotel and airfare, and a VIP experience at Black River Entertainment!

Here’s what else is up for grabs: Fitness trackers, Bose® wireless headphones, $150 and $200 gift cards, signed Buffalo Bills memorabilia and autographed Black River Entertainment merchandise. Five prizes will be awarded each week during the Challenge.

Step Up Your Game!
Track your steps online or with a compatible fitness tracker and earn points to be entered in the additional weekly Steps Challenge prize drawing. Every 5,000 steps is an entry into the drawing for two tickets to the Dec. 10 Bills game at New Era Field.

NEW! Community Goal
We’re looking for some teamwork to accomplish our goals! Track your physical activity to help us reach the community goal of 1,000,000 fitness minutes during the Challenge. If we reach our goal, you’ll earn an extra 25 points!

Monday Night Fitness
Keep the momentum going this fall with Monday Night Fitness! All Western New Yorkers are invited to participate in a FREE boot camp class at New Era Field. Classes will be held at 6 p.m. every Monday throughout the Challenge and are taught by YMCA certified instructors. No sign up or registration is required; just show up! Park in Lot 2 and enter at Gate 2; proceed into the stadium and enter at sections 133/134. Check the message board for cancellations.

Remember, the more you do, the more points you’ll earn, and the greater your chance to win a prize!

As the official health and wellness partner of the Buffalo Bills, we’re working together to give everyone a little extra incentive to get healthier. The Challenge is just one way we can help improve nutrition and fitness habits, as well as overall health, in Western New York.
