Healthy living challenge with Northern Health

first_imgInitiated in the fall of 2014, the healthy living challenge has participants build on what they’ve learned over the previous six weeks – with the first two challenges focused on walking the Great Northern Circle Route and tracking the steps taken.”The goal is to engage men where they’re at right now and encourage them to take steps to improve their health today and for the long-term,” Northern Health’s regional lead for men’s health Margaret Jones-Bricker says.Employees involved in the pilot – including those from Excel Trucking, Lomak Bulk Carriers Ltd, the City of Terrace, and Ridley Coal Terminal – are now a part of a healthy living competition, as each participant will earn points for every healthy eating choice they make, as well as the time they spend engaged in physical activity outside of work. These points will then translate into goals and ice time as men compete in the PLAYOFF hockey challenge.- Advertisement -“Physically I feel great,” Lorenzo Webb, an employee of Lomak Bulk Carriers in Prince George says. “I look fit and my steps have gone up from about 14,000 before the Step Up challenge to 20,000 after.”The program, aimed at improving men’s health in the workplace, is collaboration between the B.C. and Yukon Division of the Canadian Cancer Society, the B.C. Cancer Agency, Northern Health, and researchers from Athabasca University and the University of British Columbia.It is funded through a Canadian Cancer Society grant.Advertisementlast_img read more
