Wellness is expansive – it’s not a number on the scale or a cholesterol level. It’s multi-dimensional. It’s mind, body, and soul. Wellness is integral to living a balanced, healthy, happy life. We want to make sure everyone in our community has the tools and resources to be well.
Join us for the FREE Woodbury Thrives Wellness Challenge! From May-October, wander our parks & trails, shop at the Farmer’s Market, connect with neighbors & friends, try new activities, and explore our city’s wellness resources!
The Woodbury Thrives Wellness Challenge will give you tips and resources to explore all dimensions of health and wellness. Complete activities, earn points, and end up winning prizes! The cost to enter the challenge is FREE, as is the cost to complete most challenges. Everyone who completes the challenge will receive a FREEt-shirt! Come join your neighbors and friends and have fun in our summer of wellness! Everyone in your family can take part – no one is too big or too small!
You’ll get emails with health and wellness tips and a calendar so you can see all the health and wellness activities in our community. Complete the wellness challenge, and you will be eligible to win some great prizes!
Looking for a fun way to move your body this summer? Wish there were more events where you could bike or use your rollerblades? Join us for our family-friendly Ride, Stride, or Glide event! We’ll have a 10-mile bike ride through our extensive and beautiful Woodbury parks and trail system, a family-friendly 5K, and a glide around Colby Lake.
