Independent Health and the Buffalo Bills announced they will launch a second round of The Independent Health and Buffalo Bills Health & Wellness Challenge, running from April 20 through May 31. The Health & Wellness Challenge is designed to engage all Western New Yorkers in fun and interactive activities that improve nutrition and fitness habits as well as overall health. Participants are motivated to get healthier by meeting daily goals and completing daily challenges for points to win prizes. A new component of the challenge will give participants the chance to earn extra points by referring others to the program.
The inaugural challenge, which ran from October 6 through November 16, 2014, attracted more than 2,300 participants who logged more than 7,700 hours of exercise, while consuming nearly 80,000 servings of fruits and vegetables, and drinking 133,750 glasses of water.
