Are you a group who meet at lunch for a weekly run? Is there a leisure activity that you participate in? Give us your story, in 300 words or less and tell us how this connects you to being well and automatically enter your name into a ballot for a chance to win a prize and be featured with your story on this website.

Email your success stories to Maria Joy in Occupational Health at manapulm@kgh.kari.net. Winners will be chosen and announced in November so stay tuned!

Healthy Workplace One-Month Challenge

Do you like a challenge? If so, send an email to Karen Allan in Leadership & Learning allank@kgh.kari.net with what you will commit to doing through the month of October. Your challenge would be something that promotes physical or mental wellness for yourself through eating well, feeling well, being well, or connecting well. Examples include taking the stairs, eating 2 pieces of fruit, taking a walk on our lunch break, or meditating three times a week.

At the end of the month please send a brief email to Karen Allan saying how you did with your challenge. A random draw for three prizes will take place the first week of November with all of the participants.
