Do you like to motivate others?

More than 700 employees current volunteer in this role, helping to support a culture of health within their area.
A small amount of time garners big benefits
Champions serve a two-year term and spend approximately two hours per month on their duties. Responsibilities include:
- Working with an MHealthy Wellness Coordinator to tailor activities to fit your coworkers’ needs
- Helping to achieve your area’s health and well-being goals
- Communicating about MHealthy programs and resources
- Encouraging participation in healthy activities
Grants available to fund department wellness projects
As a Champion, you can also qualify to apply for wellness grants for projects that support the interests and needs of your coworkers. So far, more than 100 grants have been awarded for a range of well-being projects and activities.
For example, Champions interested in supporting mental well-being have created zen dens or brought in massage chairs. Those focused on physical wellness have purchased exercise equipment or held healthy potlucks.
If you are interested in becoming a Champion, apply by Aug. 16. MHealthy will contact your supervisor to get approval.
