The Community Wellness Action Council was developed to promote healthy lifestyles among members of the community and to create a culture that facilitates wellness. Through education, community events, and utilizing the local resources, we hope to create positive health behaviors that can be maintained and embraced within our community.
Community Wellness Action Council's Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from a diverse professional wellness community. Our mission is to create opportunities, provided education, and foster changes in our broad community that help individuals lead healthier lives. We have made an effort to include members representing the following fields: Alternative therapies, Chiropractic, Fitness, Mental Health, Nutrition, Physical Therapy, Primary Care, and Public Health. Our Board also includes a community representative and high school student who have made personal commitments to wellness.
Since forming, CWAC has sponsored and organized several events in the community to promote wellness. This summer we offered Community Capture the Flag and Community Yard Games. We have also done Yoga in the Park, Obstacle Course for Kids, and sponsored the "Show Me Your Wellness" campaign online. CWAC also brought the Community Wellness Expo to the "Freeze Yer Gizzard Blizzard Race" during Icebox Days. We are curently fundraising to continue to offer these events an more in our community. We also want to bring an all-inclusive local resource website that will be a one stop shop for wellness resources.
