Healthier You at a Glance
The Healthier You program runs for 12 weeks, January thru April. The program provides participants with weekly activities, weight loss, and smoke free tracking. Healthier You is open to all participants age 5 years and older. Families are encouraged to participate together and form healthier lifestyles together. Participants can form teams which create workout groups that often outlast the length of the program. Each week Healthier You offers a special sponsored activity for the community free of charge. These activities range from sample workouts to health and wellness educational opportunities. Participants can also take advantage of free biometric screening which is offered by SWAN at the beginning and end of the program. Healthier You participants earn points for their weight loss, physical activities and smoke free days. Recognition is given to the top point earners, as well as all participants that meet certain point threshholds are entered into the Grand Prize, Second Chance, and Over 25 Under 100 Prize drawings. Returning participants that meet maintained weight loss criteria are entered into the K-TWO (Keeping the Weight Off) Prize drawing.

Healthier You History

Healthier You was started in 2010 as a Parks & Recreation weight loss competition. In the first year, more than 200 people participated for a total of more than 1600 lbs. lost.

In 2011, the Sound Wellness Alliance Network (SWAN) was approached by Parks & Recreation to partner together to bring this program back for its second year. SWAN became the program's major sponsor, and helped springboard the program into a more comprehensive healthy living program. SWAN's financial support, guidance, and volunteers significantly impacted the expansion of the program we enjoy today. Seeing the benefits of this community program, Providence Valdez Medical Center and the PWSCC Health & Fitness Center have joined in as current and past partners of the program.

Today, Healthier You continues to promote healthy lifestyle choices for the Valdez Community. The continued support of SWAN, the PWSC Health & Fitness Center, and the Providence Valdez Medical Center has been a key factor in the success of this program.
