Building a culture of health … one step at a time

Let’s “walk to wellness” this month. Join us as Benefits & Wellness begins two new programs.

Take the Walk 4 Seven Challenge

No Fooling. Wednesday, April 1, at Uptown Park, the Walk 4 Seven Challenge kicked off with a community walk-in event.  Employees from Miami, Talawanda, city of Oxford and McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital joined together to walk 4 million steps in seven days to raise awareness for the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day. It is not too late to join this challenge and step up to heart health. Call 529-3492 for details.
