#hpHealthySelfie Challenge

Small Steps to a Healthier You

We all strive to be healthy. But the fact is that most of us will be affected by a chronic disease or major illness in our lifetime. The stats support this - 87% of Canadians will be dealing with this reality at some point.

There are small steps that we can all take that can make a huge difference in helping us cope with this challenge - and that's where HealthPartners comes in. We are a national organization active in workplaces across the country to represent 16 of Canada's most trusted national health charities. At HealthPartners, we raise money for our member charities, enabling them to provide critical services, invest in research, and provide health prevention and wellness programs in communities across Canada. 

It's all part of our #hpHealthySelfie Challenge. We're here to help you take the first step to a healthier you. Between September 28 and November 1, 2016, we'll be providing lots of great tips to help you do just that - tips you can do on your own, at home with your family and in the workplace with your colleagues. Over these five weeks, you'll also be able to receive advice from five experts on the link between drinking water, physical activity, eating healthy foods, getting a good night's sleep and de-stressing - one expert a week in each of these important focus areas. 
 

Take the Challenge

From September 28 to November 1, 2016, take a selfie or video of yourself, or you and your family or your work colleagues in action while you're on the road to better health.
