Earlier this year, Gen Excel Founder Gary Marino and I joined forces to kick off a unique community wellness initiative in Hilton Head, South Carolina called “Inspiring
Wellness” The nine week program offers behavioral, nutritional and exercise components and is free to the public.
There were hundreds of people for the initial event at the First Presbyterian Church on Hilton Head where Gary provided inspiration and advice before being celebrated at a post event reception. Three days later Gary, myself and others led a beach walk for nearly 70
people who braved unseasonably frigid temperatures to participate. Gary returned to Hilton Head on Week 5 to join me for the “stress” seminar as well.
Inspiring Wellness Team Member Jen Wright, a wellness and occupational health coordinator from Hilton Head Hospital, had this to say about the campaign to date: “It’s been amazing to see is how the community has pulled together surrounding health and wellness with this
program. To see the crowds show up week after week tells us that they are concerned about their health and their neighbor’s health.”
