Health Hero

Health Hero

Back in May, we asked you all to nominate your health heroes in the region — anyone from teachers to fitness trainers to non-profit founders making the Philadelphia area a healthier and happier place to be. Now, after going through over 600 nominations, Philadelphia magazine editors have narrowed it down to 16 semifinalists, and we need your help choosing this year’s Health Hero Challenge winner!

First up is the semifinals, consisting of four weeklong rounds of voting. The winner from each round will go on to the finals in October. The winner of our fifth annual Health Hero Challenge will be named the 2016 Health Hero and a $10,000 donation will be made to the charity of his or her choice. The three runners-up will each receive a $2,500 donation to the charity of their choosing.

So go ahead — cast your vote!
(And come back tomorrow! You can vote once every 24 hours.)
