The Community Wellness Program seeks to promote wellness and encourages a healthy lifestyle throughout the population in Southeastern Idaho. The program is free and open to anyone in the community. Our goal is to help people find ways to be active and stay active. The program offers motivational support and various exercise and step challenges to help engage the community in wellness. By addressing physical activity and good nutrition with easy monthly challenges, the Community Wellness Program attempts to make healthier behavior a fun part of your everyday life.
We use a website called Shapelink to create fitness challenges. We use Shapelink because it let’s us create our own challenges for our own specific group. It will also allow you to create your own challenges if you choose to do so. Shapelink allows you to sync your fitbit or fitness tracker to their system and upload your activity automatically. If you would like to join our Shapelink group challenges, please click here for more information.
Another way to participate is to like our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/PortneufHealthTrust. Here you can follow along with our community discussions, get information about local activities and find out what other businesses are doing. The more you interact and participate on our page, the more opportunities you have to win prizes! We hand out prizes to random winners in each challenge. Our prizes range from gift cards to concert tickets! It’s a fun and easy way for us to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
We like to partner with other local businesses who have the same goal of a healthy community. If you or your business offers healthy benefits to our community or has useful information to share, please email Lacey@portneufhealthtrust.org or call 208-239-1955.
