2015 Be Well Philly Health – Nominate Someone You Know

Philadelphia magazine and Independence Blue Cross are looking for
the 2015 Be Well Philly Health Hero, a local champion who inspires
others to be healthy, fit and well. Nominate someone you know TODAY!
The winner receives a feature in Philadelphia magazine AND $7,500 directed to the charity of their choice. 
Nominate today: 

Nominees
can be anyone who’s truly helping and inspiring others to make strides
for healthier lives. Nominate family, friends, teachers, coaches, chefs,
co-workers, trainers, nurses, doctors, therapists, chefs, hospital
staff, community leaders, nonprofit staff, and yes, even YOURSELF.

You
may nominate more than one person. Nominations are now open and close
on Monday, July 20, 2015 at 11:59pm. Then we select 16 semi finalists
who face off in a social community bracketology-style voting, until we
get to the Final Four. In the final 2-week round, voting and social
engagement surge as supporters advocate for their Health Hero to win.

Nominees
just be 21 or over and live in the Philadelphia area (Philadelphia
County, Montgomery County, Bucks County, Delaware County, Chester
County, South Jersey or Northern Delaware). Anyone doing innovative and
extraordinary work to advance the health and wellbeing fits the bill.
