The Grand Prize winners, listed below, will each receive $15,000 in cash:

  • Wellness category: H.I.A. Harmony in Action Windsor is an organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of adults living with developmental and/or physical challenges by providing opportunities to succeed.

Second and Third Place prizes were also given away in each category, with the winners receiving $10,000 and $5,000 each, respectively. Additionally, two nominated charitable organizations were selected by random drawing each week for 10 weeks, to receive a $500 donation from Nature's Bounty.
