Join the 7th Annual Wellness Challenge!

The Annual Wellness Challenge is back again for its 7th year! The City of Swift Current Community Services is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles in our community by offering the Wellness Challenge free of charge for all community members!

“This is a great opportunity for a healthy start to the year. Over the past six years, just over 1800 people have participated in the Wellness Challenge. Let’s help Swift Current be a place where a ‘healthy’ life makes sense!” says Val Choo-Foo, In Motion Community Facilitator.

The 7th Annual Wellness Challenge will run from January 21 to February 17. To participate you can register a team from your workplace, organization or family by emailing Each member of your team will then 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 will be compiled from each team. 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!

Additionally, this year there have been a few changes made to the challenge based on the feedback from previous years; so, look at the changes, gather a team, and join the Wellness Challenge! Let’s have some competitive fun within our teams but also against other community teams.
