Win With Wellness Fit Club

Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital has partnered with Ludington Area Schools, Ludington Area Catholic School, Covenant Christian School, Mason County Central Schools, Mason County Eastern Schools, Hart Schools, Pentwater Schools and Baldwin to offer health and wellness opportunities for elementary students through the hospital’s Win with Wellness Fit Club Program.

The Win with Wellness Fit Club Program is designed to:

  • Increase knowledge and awareness of healthy lifestyle choices;
  • Create opportunities for physical fitness within our 100-mile challenge;
  • Foster teamwork, goal setting, sportsmanship and a proactive approach to health;
  • Offer fitness measurements through the school's physical education program;
  • Offer Body Mass Index (a computation of height & weight) measurement for students to track fitness progress and program effectiveness; and
  • Offer health educational opportunities around important health topics.

Students who participate in the 100-mile challenge earn prizes as milestones are met.  Prizes include free admission to the West Shore Community College Recreation Center, ice arena and swimming pool; discounts at Snyder's Shoes and Johnny's Skate Center; free mini golf at the Ludington Area Jaycess mini golf course; free round of golf at Lakeside Links; free bucket of ball for the driving range at Golden Sands Golf Course in Mears; free kids groups at Northstar Chiropractic; free weekend fitness classes at Lakeside Family Fitness in Hart; free participation in the City of Ludington 5k events, Octoberfest, New Year's Eve and Irish Jig; free participation in the City of Scottville's Running with the Clowns 5k; free participation in the Baldwin Salmon Run; and t-shirts, water bottles and other prizes given along the way.

We hope to foster a love of health and fitness in the students so that their behaviors and choices will sustain them for a lifetime of wellness.  Together, we can make a difference.
