Get Healthy Kewaunee County BINGO Challenge
KEWAUNEE, WI – The Kewaunee County Public Health Department is encouraging the community to join them in a health and wellness BINGO challenge in partnership with Bellin Health, Fit Families, Kewaunee Health & Fitness Center and Stodola’s IGA.
"The members of the Get Healthy Kewaunee County workgroup realize that there are a lot of restrictions during the pandemic; however, nutrition and physical activity do not have to be one of those. Having access to good nutrition and physical activity habits in Kewaunee County is what this group is all about,” said Rachel Bauer, Kewaunee County WIC Director & Dietitian. “Get Healthy Kewaunee County wanted to create some fun for community members during the winter months and what better than to improve the nutrition and physical activity habits of the community though an engaging game?"
The goal is to complete 20 squares on a BINGO card of tasks such as, visiting Winter Park for snow tubing or skiing, eating five servings of fruits and vegetables, and/or donating a healthy item to a local food pantry. Those interested in playing have a chance to win fantastic prizes, which may include: a free monthly membership to Kewaunee Health and Fitness Center, $50 gas cards, gift cards to local businesses, and more!
Completed BINGO cards can be submitted via mail to the Kewaunee County Public Health Department, Attn: Rachel Bauer, 810 Lincoln Street Kewaunee, WI, 54216 or email to Rachel Bauer at firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at the Kewaunee County Public Health Department. The deadline to submit cards is March 1, 2021.
BINGO cards, instructions, submission can be found online on the Kewaunee County website www.kewauneeco.org under the Public Health Department page. Look for the “Community Health” section and then “Get Healthy Kewaunee County”.
