Summer Wellness Challenge

Wellness Challenge Calendar

In lieu of the weather induced Sunset Yoga cancellations, we will be offering one last session next Wednesday (8/28) at the Lincoln Park Community Lake from 7-8 pm.  This will be the final scheduled event of the 2019 Summer Wellness Challenge so be sure to come out, enjoy some yoga under the sunset, and secure one last raffle ticket.

 As a reminder, during the final week of August (8/26-8/30) feel free to stop by the Lincoln Park Health Department with all of your event tickets and hole punches to be exchanged for raffle tickets.  With those raffle tickets, you can enter to win prizes at the Lincoln Park Health Department tent at Lincoln Park Day on September 28th.  Raffle ticket redemption next week will be available at the following times:

 Monday-Thursday (8/26-8/29): 9am-12pm and 2pm-4pm

Friday (8/30): 9am-12pm

 Thank you all again for being a part of the first ever Lincoln Park Summer Wellness Challenge.  Have a wonderful rest of your summer and be sure to stay happy and healthy!

Monday

Monday Campaign

Monday is the day most people are likely to start anew and get healthy. People view Monday as a day for a fresh start and are more likely to start diets and exercise regimes, quit smoking and schedule doctor’s appointments on Monday than any other day.
And a Monday start helps them carry out their healthy intentions for the week.
For more information on the Monday Campaign go to:
