BlueBack Health Announces 4th Annual Connecticut Chamber Wellness Challenge

Glastonbury, Connecticut: Chambers of Commerce and their members all over the State will be lacing up their sneakers for some friendly competition via the 4th Annual BlueBack Health Chamber Wellness Challenge.

As individuals and businesses continue to face new challenges each and every day the concept of simply going for a walk, and connecting with friends and families might simply sound nice.

Glastonbury-based health risk expert, BlueBack Health is excited to host the 4th Annual Chamber Wellness Challenge. This three-month Wellness Challenge will kick off on April 1, 2023. The Challenge gives participating chambers (15 chambers participated in 2022) a platform to re-energize and engage with their membership and communities in a safe, impactful way. Last year’s Challenge was a huge success with the Newington Chamber coming in first, Greater New Haven in second, and the Greater Waterbury Regional Chamber in 3rd.  Collectively, all participating Chambers and the corporate teams walked over 162 million steps (that’s almost 110,000 miles or four trips around the earth)! 

During the challenge participating chambers and their members are invited to walk their way to improved health, as they enjoy unlimited access to educational and wellness programming through the Chamber Wellness Challenge health portal.  Additionally, BlueBack Health has committed to making charitable donations at the end of the Challenge, to local Not for Profits selected by the top three winning chambers.  The 2022 recipients were Newington Children’s Theatre Company, Marrakech, and Literacy Volunteers of Greater Waterbury. 

“We continue to hear that the annual Chamber Wellness Challenge is not only providing a fun platform to get moving a bit more, but we’re also hearing that individual lives are being changed,” said Eric Thompson, Principal at BlueBack Health. “Also, more and more businesses are giving back to several charitable organizations and last year was no exception.  Personally, I am humbled by the generosity of our chambers, sponsors, and individual participants.”   

Commitment Deadlines:                                                                                  

Chambers should commit by February 17, 2022, to allow adequate time for marketing membership.
