More than 2,300 individuals completed the inaugural Independent Health and Buffalo Bills Health & Wellness Challenge. During the six-week program, which ran from Monday, Oct. 6 through Sunday, Nov. 16, participants 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. In addition to improving their health and well-being, all competitors were eligible to win prizes by meeting weekly goals and completing daily challenges. Based on the success of the inaugural challenge, Independent Health and the Buffalo Bills football team are working on a second effort. Details will be made public in early 2015.
