MASON CITY – The Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health has announced a county-wide weight management and healthy habits challenge for local businesses. Each year, the Health Department sponsors a weight management challenge for County Employees through their employee wellness program. The program focuses on several areas of healthy living to help employees manage their weight, especially during the difficult holiday months.

This year, the Department is offering a program to not only county employees, but ALL interested businesses in Cerro Gordo County in hopes that friendly competition between organizations will provide motivation to participating teams as they adopt healthy behaviors. The Dollar$ & $en$e challenge begins October 13th and runs 12 weeks. Interested businesses are encouraged to register in teams of 2-5 people. There is no charge for participation, and organizations can customize the challenge to fit the needs of their employees.

“Over the past several years, the Health Department has coordinated a weight management challenge for our own employees with good success. This year, we wanted to rev up the competition and provide an opportunity for other local organizations to offer a healthy competition for their staff. Whether you are looking to lose weight or just want to add healthier habits to your daily life, this challenge is a great kickstart,” said Kelli Huinker, Health Promotion Manager, Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health.

The challenge allows team members to earn points for incorporating healthy behaviors into their day, such as eating fruits and vegetables, regularly exercising, food journaling, managing their weight, etc. Garmin VivoFit fitness watches will be awarded to the highest scoring team.
