Sponsored by Summerlin Hospital Medical Center, event is designed to motivate the community with check-ins, weekly prizes
The master-planned community of Summerlin® is launching a new virtual initiative called Wellness Wednesdays starting in September. Sponsored by Summerlin Hospital Medical Center, Wellness Wednesdays kicked off on Wednesday, Sept. 2 on Summerlin and Downtown Summerlin social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) with a complete overview of the program.
Weekly fitness and wellness challenges will be issued each Wednesday, with the first challenge starting on Sept. 9. Challenges feature a different pillar of health each week, including physical wellness, mental wellness and self-care, nutrition, and social wellness. Participants have one week to complete the weekly challenge and show proof of completion at Concierge at Downtown Summerlin under the Breezeway of ONE Summerlin at 1980 Festival Plaza Drive to receive a free gift each week while supplies last. Those who complete all four challenges are eligible to receive the grand prize.
According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, VP – Marketing, Summerlin, Wellness Wednesdays is the perfect way to continue to engage Summerlin residents and the community in a fun and uplifting way. “Along with our partner, Summerlin Hospital Medical Center, we are reminding and encouraging everyone to continue taking care of themselves,” said Bisterfeldt. “It’s easy to put personal wellness on the back burner, especially given the stresses of the past several months. This program encourages everyone to look inward, get moving and prioritize their personal health – all in a safe, virtual way.”
Here’s how the program works. Participants are asked to post a selfie or activity within one week of the challenge post. Challenges will post on Wednesday mornings on Summerlin and Downtown Summerlin social media feeds (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter), and participants have until 6 PM the following Tuesday to post and claim their weekly gift at Concierge. Participants are asked to post proof of having completed each weekly challenge on their social media. Samples include workout selfies or photos, radiant self-care results, healthy snacks, etc., using the hashtag #SummerlinWellness and tagging both @DowntownSummerlin and @Summerlin.
At Downtown Summerlin’s Concierge, participants will show a screenshot of their post to claim a gift each week. Upon first redemption, participants will receive a punch-card to earn stamps as they complete consecutive weekly challenges. Concierge Hours: 8 AM – 7 PM Monday – Friday, 9 AM – 7 PM Saturday, 11 AM – 7 PM Sunday. At the end of the series, the first 100 guests to present their punch-card with all four stamps completed will receive an exclusive grand gift for completing the program.
