Building Healthy Communities With Champions of Care Challenge #HealthMartCares

I have evaluated our families lifestyle this year and have made some major adjustments. I, myself needing to lose much-needed weight after having five children in the span of  eight years, never having quite the time to lose any of the weight in between each pregnancy.  One of those big adjustments is our eating habits. I have allowed too much junk food in our home and this year I am saying no more!  We are making healthier options.  Adding more fruits and vegetables onto our plates.  I have been scouring web-sites for healthy menu ideas and plan in advance. Plus  I have a plan in place to start walking and doing some aerobics at home and even having my children participate!  This year is the year for change,  change for the good. 


All across America people are taking action this year  to have a healthier active lifestyle. Caring people are quietly doing amazing things for the health of their communities. To say thank you, our independent Health Mart pharmacists are awarding $50,000 in grants to community health non-profits to recognize them for improving health and well-being in their communities.

  1. That’s a great contest. I finally lost the weight after my second son, but I only have two kids – you have more than double what I have ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Sounds like a great program. I will have to think about who to enter!

  3. I love great programs like this. Thank you for sharing.

  4. I had to change my lifestyle after a bout with Pancreatitis last year. I hadto switch to whole grains and eliminate red meats & fried foods. It was difficult at first but then becomes just a regular routine. I lost about 25 lbs since it all started.

  5. What a great program. My husband had a heart attack just over a year ago, making changes became mandatory. Not always easy but so worth it.

  6. People like that most definitely do deserve recognition. Love that they’re doing this!

  7. What a nice program and I love the take a meal to the elderly as part of their Champion of Care recognition.

  8. That sounds likea great challenge.

  9. Very nice contest! I will need to enter a friend of mine into this contest – she is always sharing her knowledge about being healthy. he speaks at children groups and is a excellent resource for healthy info.

  10. My family needs to adjust our eating habits as well. Health Mart Pharmacy’s Champions of Care Challenge sounds wonderful!

  11. This is such a needed contest.. people should be doing good things for everyday!

  12. What a great program and giveaway. Can’t wait to see who wins.

  13. I think this is an amazing way to help people get healthy and stay motivated to do so. Those grants could help buy treadmills and healthier food, or bikes and things like that to remain active and healthy! What a great challenge!

  14. I’m so glad they are doing this! So many non-profit organizations and individuals can benefit from this grant money! Great program!!!

  15. What a great program! I can think of a few groups offhand who would be good for this award! Thank you for sharing!

  16. What an awesome contest! Such a good cause, too!

  17. Awesome, I have someone I want to nominate. Crossing my fingers.

  18. I’m with you on the junk food. It’s so easy to reach for at the last minute. I want to do better with cooking vs. preparing meals.

    I shared #HealthMartCares on Twitter. I hope more people enter and help their community.

  19. What a great contest. We are working on getting healthy too.

  20. love this! I encourage programs like this, especially for mothers! I am a mom of 5 and my health comes first too because I need to be here for my kids!

  21. i’m losing weight too. we eat healthy, there’s just this whole thing where i’d just eat 5 cookies instead of the healthy stuff I keep in the house

  22. WOW, thank you for sharing! This sounds like an amazing program and I am going to enter as well! Thanks

  23. This sounds like a great program to reward those who do so much for others!

  24. What a great program they are doing to offer support! I hope it encourages lots of great projects to help around communities.

  25. I wish the weight would come off as fast as we seem to gain it. This looks like a great way to offer support to caregivers. I’m going to have to think of nominating and at the very least to go and vote for someone when that part starts.

  26. I Love When Companies Give Back Wish Their Were More Of These Companies Sounds Like A Great Company!!

  27. What a great program! It makes me happy to see them rewarding those who are promoting healthy lifestyles and helping others to get healthy!

  28. Champions of Care is such an amazing program! I wish we had a Health Mart near us. I never heard of them before!

  29. That is an awesome amount of money the deserving can win!

  30. This is such a great cause. I really love the concept behind it.

  31. I am with you! We really need to start making healthier choices!

  32. What a great contest! I hope someone very deserving wins and puts the money to good use in their community ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. This Champions of Care challenge sounds like a wonderful program. We need more of them to promote helping our neighbors & community.

  34. We have had to change our habits because of my husband’s high blood pressure and cholesterol. We have also lost weight, but that’s just an added bonus.

  35. I agree we need to start making healthier choices in many ways! What an awesome contest best of luck to those who can enter, we don’t have a Health Mart around here!

  36. I just heard about this program the other day! It seems like a great way to give back to the community. And good for you, making healthy changes.

  37. These prizes will make a huge difference to the non-profits that receive them!

  38. What a great contest. Not only do the unsung champions feel the “win” when they do something good in the first place, but the winners will get to gift big as a result! I would be ear-to-ear proud!

  39. What a wonderful program. Having worked in non-profits before, I know what a huge impact winning a grant can be.

  40. I love to hear about programs like this one. Too often we focus on the negative, when we should be celebrating the positive and the individuals that make that happen!

  41. Glad to hear you decided to to change your lifestyle for the better! How I wish I could do that. It’s been on my top-list to stop eating junks but sometimes it’s hard especially not eating out. But that seems like a great program to join in! Good luck to those who enter ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. Amy Desrosiers says:

    I need to lose weight as well! I had three kids in 6 years and I dint think I’ve ever totally lost all the weight!!

  43. Good luck with your weight loss goals. Healthy eating is a great start. There are so many great low calorie snacks out there!

  44. I have had some major health issues in the last few years that have completely changed the way I eat and take care of myself. In my early 20s I found out that I had chronic low blood sugar and my body wasn’t able to regulate its blood sugar normally, and at the same time, in the very same hospital visit, found out that my heart rate was dangerously high. I had to reevaluate everything in my daily life and make some drastic changes, so I know how hard it can be to get and stay on the right track when it comes to your health and well-being, and just how important a strong support system is during that time. Health Mart sounds really great, and good on them for doing what they can to help nonprofits make a difference in the lives of the people they help.

  45. A very good program especially moms like you. Very charitable and giving back the blessings that there consumers have given to them. Great review too.

  46. This is such a fantastic program. There are so many unsung champions out there, and it’s time to celebrate them and encourage others to do the same. Kudos to Health Mart for doing this.

  47. I think if more people did good deeds in the world, it would be a better place!!! This is a great program! I hope it inspires a lot of people!

  48. I love programs like these. ๐Ÿ™‚ So inspiring!

  49. This sounds like a great program!

  50. Sounds like a great program. Thanks for sharing!

  51. Chasity Boatman says:

    Wonderful contest. Congrats to you for making healthier choices for your family!

  52. This looks like a great plan of action! Hats off to you for designing such an effective game plan ๐Ÿ™‚

  53. We’re making big changes this year too concerning our health… and we’re also involving the kids. I’ve never heard of this program, I’ll have to see if they have this by me.

  54. What an awesome contest! We are definitely always looking for healthy ideas in my family!

  55. What a great program. I will pass this on to my cousin; she’s a pediatric nurse and I’m sure she’d know where the funds could be used in their community!

  56. I’ve been making changes this year too. Lots of baby weight to lose after two kids!

  57. Wow, this sounds like such a great program. Thank you so much for sharing!

  58. Looks like it would be a awesome program.
