About the Series

The Start It, Stanly Wellness Series is a series that invites everyone to join us in their journey to better health through participating in the variety of events offered by Atrium Health’s Carolinas HealthCare System Stanly. We want to reward you for living a more active life whether it’s your first go at it or you are a pro!

Participants may share their health and wellness success story or may nominate a teammate for the Atrium Health Wellness Community Champion Award.

The Atrium Health Wellness Champion Award is for those individuals who have taken the extra step to go above and beyond in their journey to living a healthier life. The award is also for those who lead by example and motivate others to take the extra step to live a healthier life. Recipients of the award have shown a dedication to health and wellness throughout the series.
