Northern Health is pleased to announce the launch of the September Health Challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to encourage northerners to get active and learn more about healthy living at work, home, in their community, and at play.
During the month of September, Northern Health team members will share blog posts that offer tips, stories and ideas to be healthier.
Every week, one of the posts will challenge northerners to step up – through cooking, getting moving or something totally different – but either way, we want you to share it with Northern Health!
Northerners will be able to submit their entry to the challenge for a chance to win a great prize – in addition to moving towards a healthier life! The contest is open to all northern residents.
Those interested in participating in the challenge can get more information on Northern Health’s blog at http://blog.northernhealth.ca/
. The first blog post with more details about the September Health Challenge is available here.
The challenge is also designed to raise awareness about Northern Health’s guidelines for healthy living (position papers on modifiable risk factors) and how we can apply these principles easily into our lives.
