Here’s what happens next: From today through September 29th, you can cast your vote for the person you want to see become one of the three finalists. You can vote once per day, every day — so get those votes in! FYI, we’ll take a closer look at these 10 wonderful wellness leaders over the next two weeks, so that you have a better idea of who they are, what they do, and the nonprofits they support.

After September 29th, we’ll tally the votes to determine which three individuals are moving on to the final round — with the ultimate winner decided by you! Our 2022 Health Hero will receive a $15,000 donation to their charity of choice, and the two runners-up will each win a $2,500 donation for their selected charities.

So, don’t delay! Cast your vote for this year’s Be Well Philly Health Hero Challenge now through September 29th.
