Wellness Challenges

Each Challenge is Worth 5 Credits for the HealthQuest Rewards Program

Challenges are designed to give eligible members the opportunity to practice healthy behaviors. Challenges focus on key behaviors such as physical activity, nutrition, weight management and stress management that help to lower health risks. Research shows these behaviors enhance the health and quality of life for individuals that include them in their daily lifestyle.

Below are the wellness challenges being offered during the 2016 HealthQuest program year (November 16, 2015 - November 15, 2016). Each challenge can only be accessed through the wellness portal during the timeframe specified. Participants track their progress daily or weekly on the portal while working toward the goal of the challenge. Credits will be awarded on the portal automatically upon completion of each challenge.
