Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe New Year! This year holds a lot of exciting events for the Wellness Initiative and we cannot wait for all of you to be part of it. When setting New Year’s goals to be healthier and more active, it is important to find inspiration to keep you motivated throughout the year. My current blog discusses some motivation tips to stay on track and healthy. To read more please read my blog.

Remember, the next Wellness Webinar will be hosted by Greg Walker of Fletcher Parks and Recreation, and Mark Scott, owner of Fleet Feet Sports in Asheville.
