health hero logoAttention, everyone! The Be Well Philly Health Hero Challenge is back for it’s fifth year, and we need to hear from you. We just opened the nomination form, so go ahead — hurry! — over and tell us all about the amazing people in the Philadelphia region who are helping to make your community healthier, from teachers to coaches to doctors to nonprofit founders. Really, anyone who is making the Philly area a healthier place to be.

To give you some background 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 13th. 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 2016 Health Hero and they’ll be celebrated in a blow-out celebration, featured in Philadelphia magazine, and they’ll win a donation of $10,000 to the charity of his or her choice. The three runners-up will also each receive a $2,500 donation to the charity of their choice.

Now, who do you know that deserves the Health Hero title? You can nominate as many health heroes as you’d like right here. Ready, set, go!
