Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2020 Manchester Employee Step Challenge.
The two finalists are listed below. Each of them has worked hard to complete a very tough challenge in a very challenging year. Since there were only three submissions for the December 2020 challenge, our sponsor has offered to waive the December raffle and award the $25 gift card to the December only participant and award both finalists with a $100 gift card for completing the challenge.

Know your Numbers Campaign

All participants will receive a $25 Hannaford gift card for completing the physical screening.
One of the Wellness Committee’s current goals is to provide monthly promotion of Preventive Care to reduce the development of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, and decrease health expenditures for the City and its employees. To assist with this goal, the SmartShopper program is a valuable resource that is promoted with payroll stuffers and email updates on a regular basis.
