Get rewarded for making healthy choices
Health & Wellness Challenge to run from May 1 through June 11
Buffalo, N.Y. (April 26, 2023) – The Independent Health and Buffalo Bills Health & Wellness Challenge is back! The latest round of this popular community-wide initiative is set to kick off on May 1 and run through June 11.
Since 2014, the Bills have teamed up with Independent Health, its Official Health & Wellness Partner, to offer the Health & Wellness Challenge as a way to encourage people of all ages to adopt a healthy lifestyle and improve their overall well-being by offering them a chance to win prizes. Thousands of Western New Yorkers have participated over the years.
During this spring’s Challenge, participants can earn 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, an award-winning wellness technology platform.
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 memorabilia, fitness trackers, wireless ear buds, and a variety of gift cards. Plus, one lucky Challenge participant will be randomly chosen as the grand prize winner and receive a $1,000 Visa gift card, eight tickets with parking to a Bills preseason home game, an autographed Bills helmet, and prize packs from the Bills and Independent Health.
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.
Join us for Workout Wednesdays
All Health & Wellness Challenge participants are also invited to attend free “Workout Wednesday” fitness classes, courtesy of Independent Health. Led by YMCA certified instructors, boot camp is held every Wednesday at 6 p.m. inside the ADPRO Sports Training Center now through the end of the Challenge. This is a great way to get fit and earn points.
