A hearty congratulations to the three honorees of this year’s CommonHealth Wellness Champion Awards! The Wellness Champion Award recognizes an employee who models a healthy lifestyle, has made significant changes in health behaviors, motivates others to make health improvements, or has implemented a policy to help create a positive wellness culture for the Commonwealth of Virginia. Each of this year’s winners has made their workplace better through their efforts and will be awarded with a certificate from the Governor, a CommonHealth Goodie Bag, and a feature of their stories on the CommonHealth Website.

“For me, being "well at work" means basically being well in life! Wellness and fitness is a chosen attitude and goal throughout the day, which includes what you eat, how you think and your level of activity. I go to the gym twice a week after work and find that classes provide the physical intensity and group encouragement for me to feel fit and energized. I served as team captain for office participation in various Live Healthy Lynchburg and CommonHealth of VA health challenges which encourage all to increase their activity level and have fun in doing so. The CommonHealth newsletters are very informative and the challenges offer health conscious activities that most can do at any fitness level.”
