PRO Wellness has extensive experience in developing and implementing promotional campaigns through the management of its Health Champions program, which reaches more than 630 Pennsylvania schools annually. The GIANT Company is committed to supporting Healthy Champions over four years, starting in 2020/2021 school year.
To enroll in the program, schools complete an online assessment and are provided a personalized score based on the reported wellness initiatives in multiple areas of school wellness, including physical activity, nutrition, mental wellness, parent engagement and community engagement.
Once enrolled, schools receive a complimentary welcome kit, which includes a display banner signifying enrollment, wellness infographic posters, access to an online resource portal, monthly newsletters, and event toolkits to host and promote four signature awareness events: Apple Crunch, Walk to School Day, Go for the Greens and Move it Outside. In addition, PRO Wellness provides special incentives for enrolling through established partnerships. Through collaboration with the Hershey Bears® Hockey Club, actively enrolled schools in 19 south-central Pennsylvania counties are provided an opportunity for each student to attend a Hershey Bears® hockey game.
