The Capital Area Wellness Coalition (CAWC) is pleased to announce the second annual Capital Area Well Done!Awards. These awards recognize and bring to the forefront wellness activities taking place at worksites, initiatives of community groups, and the leadership of unsung wellness heroes within our community who are making a difference. The CAWC’s Capital Area Well Done!Awards shine a light on these efforts because they align with our mission to create a culture of healthy living for everyone in the Capital area.

Nominations can be made for the following categories: Well workplace (employers and work site teams), Community Wellness Effort (organizations, schools, youth, community groups, and teams), and Wellness Hero (an individual making a difference).

First Annual Mayor’s Walk a Huge Success!
Mayor Jim Bouley leads the walk with Johane Telgener, Director of Concord Hospital Center for Health Promotion and Joe Kasper, Director of Corporate Services at Northeast Delta Dental.
More than 100 people showed up for the first annual Mayor’s Walk, a one-mile walk through downtown Concord to support the I Prefer to Walk! campaign, which promotes wellness, community, and walkability of Concord’s beautiful downtown. The walk began at the Capital Area Wellness Coalition office building on Main Street and culminated at a Healthy Living Fair in Bicentennial Square, where over a dozen vendors displayed information about their goods and services. Breakfast was also served courtesy of Stonyfield yogurt and BagelWorks Cafe.
