Celebrating This Year’s Be Well Philly Health Hero Winners
On November 14th, the 6th annual Be Well Philly Health Hero Challenge presented by Independence Blue Cross celebrated the winner of the competition which searches for the region’s champions of health and wellness. The Challenge launched on June 1st with a call for nominations. The 10 semifinalists were then selected to face-off. In the final round of voting, supporters advocated for the three finalists.

Three VIP’s (Very Influential Philadelphians) who are also making a positive impact on our community also competed.
