Year of Wellness - Call for Nominations.

The blogs on my "follow" list have been full of thoughtful holiday gift ideas over the past few weeks, ranging from gadgets for foodies to gifts for a fitness-loving lady friend. I love reading gift idea lists, but I have one more to throw out there if you're thinking about an extra special holiday gift for a family member or friend this year: consider submitting a nomination for the Year of Wellness Contest from Fitness Formula Clubs {FFC}!

This is the third year of the Year of Wellness, and the winner will receive an entire year's worth of wellness gifts, including personal training, nutrition consulting, massages, and more from various sponsors {valued at more than $15,000}! FFC started this contest to give back to the community, and offer someone the tools needed to start {or in some cases, continue} a healthy lifestyle journey.

The first Year of Wellness 2013 winner was Quinetta Taylor, pictured at the Gift of Hope Lifesaving Partner Awards ceremony this fall. Gift of Hope is an organ and tissue donation non-profit organization. Quinetta applied for the Year of Wellness to continue her weight loss journey as a woman suffering from chronic kidney disease. At the end of her winning year, she had lost an amazing 120 pounds.

Year of Wellness submissions must include a photo and 300 words or less on why the nominee deserves to win {you can also nominate yourself}. Entries will be posted on the FFC website on December 16th, and voting by the public will continue through midnight on December 31st. A panel of judges will vote on the winner out of the top five nominees with the most votes. One winner will be selected in mid-January, and the winner must live in the greater Chicagoland area.  

Entries are due on Monday, December 15th - click here to submit a nomination.
