May's Wellness Challenge

In recognition of Global Employee Health & Fitness Month, the Wellness Program and several Whatcom County gyms, fitness clubs, and health studios have organized May's Wellness Challenge.

For all Saturdays in May, employees are invited to stop by participating locations, join a class, try something new, and most importantly, get moving... and it's all for FREE!

Here's how it works:

  1. Choose the location(s) you are interested in.
  2. Recruit a friend or family member to come with you for FREE. Not required, but welcome.
  3. Contact the location/visit their website to reserve your spots, get any questions answered, and fill out any waivers ahead of time.
  4. Bring your County employee badge and valid driver's license with you for check-in as proof of entry.
  5. Provide feedback by May 31 and be entered to win $50 reimbursement towards a 2017 CSA box or gym membership of your choice.
    The more you visit, the more entries you will have in the drawing.
  6. Have fun!
The Wellness Challenge is limited to one visit per location per employee.
