Thank you to everyone who put some thought into what healthy eating, active living and healthy communities means to you during our Picture YOU Healthy challenge. We received some amazing photo entries from you and we hope you got some ideas from our posts about living a healthier lifestyle.
Last week we posted our top ten photo choices to our Facebook page and asked you to vote for the winner by liking your favourite photo. Collectively, the photos received over 1,200 Likes – thank you for your enthusiasm!
We’re happy to announce that the winner is Sandi Toor-Mann, who submitted this photo of her brother-in-law and nephew outside enjoying some activity in winter. The photo received 278 Likes!
Sandi described the photo with this: “The groundwork of all happiness is health. Out for a walk with my family on a Sunday afternoon. Enjoying quality time with my family, while modeling the importance of exercising all year around!”
