The Health and Wellness Club was formed in December 2012 in response to Chamber members looking for a greater opportunity to be active and health-conscious when away from their desks. The mission of the club is to create awareness of health and wellness throughout the Chamber and community, to provide venues for health industry Chamber members to promote their businesses, to provide opportunities to include members families at Chamber events and activities and to promote healthy living to the community. Upcoming club events include a health and wellness symposium on April 30, the Freedom 5K race on Saturday, July 6th, and a zip-line adventure in the fall.
