Description:

Our first annual Nashville Chapter of the Links, Incorporated  Heart and Soul Wellness Challenge will be held  March 1st -  April 26th ( 8 weeks)!   At the beginning of each year we often commit ourselves and our families to heart healthy initiatives through improved nutrition and increased movement. As Links, we also share our hearts with our community via service projects. In fact, this strong desire to share our heart got us thinking about our approach to the Heart Health Challenge. We believe that supporting others provides a greater sense of wellbeing and strengthens our hearts.  With that in mind, we are allocating Wellness Challenge points to activities in the following categories

  1. Physical Fitness
  2. Spiritual and Mental Wellness
  3. Healthy Eating
  4. Linked in Friendship and Service

 

Through the Challenge we hope that you will experience opportunities to focus on your heart health, mental health, and strengthen sisterly bonds through friendship and service.   The challenge structure enables you to earn points when you move your feet, engage in healthy eating/wellness habits, and share your heart with your Link sisters and the community.
