Get Healthy! Challenge results

Congratulations to our Winners!

For the last 61 days, LPCS has been undergoing a Get Healthy! Challenge in an effort to improve the health of staff, Guests, and Graduates. We had daily walking groups, yoga and tae kwon do classes, breathing exercises, stress relief, healthier meals (provided by our great volunteers!), and numerous health classes offered on and off site. The results of the challenge were wonderful!

Every single person remained at a stable weight or lost weight, often depending upon their goals. The Guests all noted an improvement in their daily health, but most importantly, they were thrilled with the new activities and variety of meals during the challenge.We even finished the challenge by completing the Run Home Chicago 5K together.

Thank you to all of our volunteers that helped us make this possible! We have a lot of new habits and we are excited about remaining a healthier organization!
