Health  Wellness Challenge is back!

Participants will be eligible to win a variety of prizes by adopting simple, healthy habits

The 15th round of the Independent Health and Buffalo Bills Health & Wellness Challenge is set to kick off on April 25 and run through June 5.

Since 2014, Independent Health and the Buffalo Bills have teamed up to offer the Health & Wellness Challenge as a way to incentivize Western New Yorkers to make healthy lifestyle choices. However, this spring marks the first time the fun and popular community initiative will be hosted by Wellable, an award-winning wellness technology platform. As a result, Challenge participants will have even more ways to get healthy and earn points toward 26 exciting prizes.

Among the prizes that are up for grabs include signed Bills items, air fryers, juicers, fitness trackers, wireless headphones and gift cards. Plus, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen as the grand prize winner and receive four tickets to a Bills game with parking, prize packs from the Bills and Independent Health, a $1,000 Visa gift card, and more!

Earning points has never been easier

Through Wellable, participants now have the ability to automatically earn points for physical activity by syncing a variety of compatible health and wellness apps and activity trackers. In addition, they can complete daily challenges, such as drinking eight glasses of water and eating five servings of fruits and vegetables, as well as weekly special activities that will focus on nutrition, stress management, hydration, physical activity, sleep and heart health.

All Challenge participants are also invited to attend free fitness classes inside the ADPRO Sports Training Center at 1 Bills Drive in Orchard Park. Led by YMCA certified instructors, these classes will be held at 6 p.m. on April 25, May 2 and May 9 and are a great way for participants to earn points for the random prize drawing.

The number of points earned throughout the six-week Challenge will determine the number of chances each participant has in the prize drawing. To be eligible to win a prize, participants must be at least 18 years of age and a legal resident of New York State at the time of entry.

Sign up today!

Registration for the new and improved Health & Wellness Challenge is now open to everyone, and you do not need to be an Independent Health member to participate. All those interested in taking part in this spring’s Challenge will need to create an account with Wellable at This includes both new participants and anyone who has participated in past Challenges. Upon creation of their account, each participant will then receive information on what types of health and wellness apps and activity trackers can be connected to their account.
