Join Us to Kick Off “Move Columbia!

Posted in: Chamber Events

We are having a special “Business After Hours” at Whittier Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center on Wednesday, August 23rd from 5:00 – 6:30 pm, to kick-off “Move Columbia”, our new Health and Wellness initiative.  “Move Columbia” is a County-wide movement created to move and improve the County’s Wellness Ranking in New York State.  “Move Columbia” will include monthly healthy events, which are simple and fun to do.  It is a Holistic approach to making healthier choices, for example:  instead of having a can of soda every day, you may choose to substitute a bottle of water once or twice a week.  Or, if you drive to pickup lunch, maybe you choose to walk one day.  Maybe you substitute a bag of chips for raisins or another healthy snack choice.  It’s easy, anyone can do it!  In 2018 a “Move Columbia” Health & Wellness Fair is being planned, along with continued health related events, such as business step challenges, water consumption challenge and healthy snack choices.  If you wish, bring your sneakers on the evening of August 23 to take a short walk with us around the grounds after the official kick off or just come and to network.
