The Halifax Wellness Project Aims to Change the Conversation Around Health in Our Community

MEDIA RELEASE
HALIFAX, N.S.
Thursday October 8th, 2015

Fusion Halifax, the Canada Games Centre and Incite are excited to launch The Halifax Wellness Project, a new initiative that aims to measure and improve the overall health of Haligonians.

The Halifax Wellness Project will be a part of a pilot for Insite, a local company with a digital coaching platform that will examine and coach participants in their journey to total health. Once the initial survey is complete, each participant will have access to individualized digital coaching and a vast resource room, including connections to local businesses and community groups that can support health.

Through to December, participants will have a chance to win incentives and prizes through their engagement with the project. Access to the online platform will continue through February 2016, and a wrap-up celebration of participants’ health successes is being planned for this winter.

The project kicks off on Saturday, October 17 at 12 pm at the Canada Game Centre, 26 Thomas Raddall Drive. Join us to learn more about the project, and complete the Incite survey on the spot. Through to December, Fusion volunteers will be at the Centre to engage with gym goers and promote the survey.

“Fusion Halifax is very excited to partner with the Canada Games Centre on a project that can push the conversation of the total health within our Halifax community a little further,” said Jesse Adams, chairman of Fusion’s Health and Wellness Action Team. “At Fusion, we believe that your health is an integral part of the happiness and sustainability of us as people and as a community.”

There will be a one-time payment of $19.95 to participate, granting you access to the platform and total health event. Proceeds raised from this project will go directly back to the Halifax community, supporting Fusion Halifax and the Canada Games Centre portion will be donated to KidSport NS.
