Take part in Health  Wellness Challenge

Participants can get rewarded by getting healthy from October 24 through December 4

Western New Yorkers don’t have to train like professional football players to accomplish their health and wellness goals. Instead, they can achieve healthier lifestyles and improve their overall well-being by simply taking part in the Independent Health and Buffalo Bills Health & Wellness Challenge.

Since 2014, Independent Health and the Buffalo Bills have teamed up to offer the Health & Wellness Challenge as a way to encourage people to adopt healthy habits by offering them opportunities to win prizes. The next round of this popular and free community initiative is set to kick off on October 24 and run through December 4. It will once again be hosted by Wellable, an award-winning wellness technology platform.

During this fall’s Challenge, participants can earn Wellable points for tracking their physical activity, completing daily challenges – like drinking eight glasses of water or eating five servings of fruits and veggies – and participating in weekly special activities that focus on emotional wellness, intellectual wellness, nutritional wellness, and more. Participants can automatically earn points for physical activity by connecting a compatible health and wellness app or device to Wellable.

The more that participants do to get healthy, the more points they’ll earn, and the greater their chances at winning a prize.

More than 25 prizes to be awarded

Among the prizes that will be up for grabs are autographed Bills footballs, helmets and jerseys, air fryers, juicers, fitness trackers, wireless headphones, and $100 Wegmans gift cards. Plus, one lucky Challenge participant will be randomly chosen as the grand prize winner and receive four tickets to a Bills home game with parking, one autographed Bills helmet, prize packs from the Bills and Independent Health (combined $250 value), and a $1,000 Visa gift card.

The number of points earned throughout the six-week Challenge will determine the number of chances each participant has in the prize drawing (one point = one entry). To be eligible to win a prize, participants must earn at least 25 Wellable points, while also being at least 18 years of age and a legal resident of New York State at the time of entry.

Sign up today!

Registration for this fall’s Health & Wellness Challenge is now open, and you do not need to be an Independent Health member to participate. All those interested in taking part in the Challenge for the first time will need to create an account with Wellable at Upon creation of their account, each participant will then receive information on what types of health and wellness apps and devices can be connected to their account.
