Nominate Your Health Hero: The 2015 Be Well Philly Health Hero Challenge Is On


health hero
Attention, people! The Be Well Philly Health Hero Challenge is back for its fourth year, and we need to hear from you. We just opened up the nomination form so, please, hurry on over and tell us all about the amazing people in the Philadelphia region — teachers, coaches, trainers, doctors, and the list goes on and on — who are helping to make your community healthier.

A little backstory on the Health Hero Challenge: The Health Hero Challenge, brought to you by Independence Blue Cross, is our annual contest to honor local champions of health and wellness who are making the Philadelphia region a healthier, happier place to be. We’ll be collecting nominations through July 20th. Then, in September, Be Well Philly readers will vote for their favorite Health Hero among 16 semifinalists chosen by the editors of Philadelphia Magazine.

The Challenger who receives the most votes will snag the title of Be Well Philly’s 2015 Health Hero and — along with joining some great company in our Health Hero hall of fame, which includes Beth Dupree, Leslie Marant and Pia Martin — they’ll be celebrated in a blow-out celebration, featured in Philadelphia magazine, and they’ll win a donation to the charity of his or her choice.

Now, who do you know that deserves the Health Hero title? You can nominate as many health heroes as you’d like (including yourself!) right here.
