Join the 8th Annual Wellness Challenge

The Wellness Challenge is back again this year! The City of Swift Current Community Services Division is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles in our community by offering the 8th annual Wellness Challenge free-of-charge for all community members!

“This is a great opportunity for a healthy start to the year. Over the past seven years, just under 2,000 people have participated in the Wellness Challenges. Let’s help Swift Current be a place where a ‘healthy’ life makes sense, and this year let’s strive to have a 20/20 vision for our health and wellness,” says Val Choo-Foo, In Motion Community Facilitator.

This Wellness Challenge runs from January 20 to February 16. Register a team from your workplace, organization or family by emailing Then each member will keep track of daily wellness points in the areas of nutrition, physical activity, water and sleep. At the end of the challenge, the total points from each team will be compiled, and there will be prizes for the top 5 overall individuals with the highest points as well as a prize for the team with the highest average of points. However, the greatest prize of all is your health and well-being!

This year there have been a few changes made to the challenge based on feedback from previous years, so take a look, gather a team, and join the Wellness Challenge! Let’s have some competitive fun within our teams but also against other community teams. Who is up for the challenge?
