This March, Communities ChooseWell will be hosting a series of Community Wellness Leadership Workshops across Alberta open to all ChooseWell Champions and any other individuals interested in working to develop a healthier community.

These workshops will give ChooseWell Champions and partners an opportunity to network and share ideas with each other, to learn about engaging community members and building partnerships, to learn ways of evaluating the effectiveness of your activities, to take some time to think about what you'd like to do to increase wellness in your community, and to better understand what supports Communities ChooseWell can offer to help.

Workshops will be full-day events (10am-3:30pm, unless otherwise noted) and will be held at the following locations:

  • March 2nd, Bow Island - Bow Island Legion, 202 5 Ave East
  • March 5th, St. Paul - Reunion Station, 53 Ave
  • March 10th, Camrose - Camrose Recreation Centre, 4512 53 Street
  • March 12th, Grande Cache - Grande Cache Legion, 100St & Hoppe Ave
  • March 17th, Calgary (Supper: 6:30 pm, Workshop: 7-9pm) - Golden Age Club, 610 8 Ave SE

Winter Walking Challenge

Communities ChooseWell is teaming up with UWALK again this February to bring you the Winter Walking Challenge. The Challenge starts on February 4th (Winter Walk Day) and runs until February 28th. Register your community for the Challenge on the UWALK website for your chance to win an Alberta Health Services WalkAlbe Workshop, as well as a grant to assist in the application of your action plan.

Two communities will be chosen as winners. The community that has the most average steps per participant will be chosen as one winner, and another participating community will be drawn at random.
