MONTREAL, March 8 /CNW Telbec/ - Best Health has partnered with VICHY to present Canadian women with a unique opportunity to empower and inspire one another to live better and feel great in 2010: the VICHY Best Health Challenge.
Committed to providing its readers with a balanced approach to healthy living, Best Health encourages women to be the best they can be in all areas of their lives: looking great, getting healthy, eating well and embracing life. In 2010, Best Health is expanding this commitment and launching a unique program that will appeal to Canadian women who either need a boost to remain true to their New Year's resolutions about fitness and wellness, or want an innovative and inspirational way to live a healthier lifestyle.
Women across Canada are invited to register for the VICHY Best Health Challenge at www.besthealthmag.ca/vichychallenge from now right through Fall 2010. And from those who register by midnight on May 15, 2010, one lucky woman will be chosen to receive a total-body makeover with personal consultations from some of Canada's leading experts in fitness, nutrition, life coaching, beauty and skincare. Her journey of transformation will be featured both on besthealthmag.ca and in the pages of four issues of Best Health magazine, commencing with the September issue.
"The support of Best Health by Canadian woman has been exceptional," says Editor Bonnie Munday. "We could not have come so far in only two years since our launch without the loyalty and support of these women. This new initiative is not only going to be full of fun and inspiration, it's a chance for us to thank our readers and online visitors for their ongoing commitment to Best Health."
In addition to the possibility of being selected the lucky Canadian to be featured in Best Health, women who register online for the VICHY Best Health Challenge will be entered to win fabulous prizes, as well as receive regular tips and support from Best Health. They will also have access to a diversity of online tools that will help them with their own whole-body makeover, all while interacting and engaging one another throughout the program at www.besthealthmag.ca/vichychallenge.
"We're thrilled to be partnering with Best Health on this program. We share its balanced approach to health and beauty," explains Julie Dagenais of VICHY. "This is a unique opportunity to speak to Canadian women and spread our message that health is truly beautiful. We are also very proud that our support of the Challenge will be giving back to women across the country."
Another unique element of the Challenge is that it will benefit the Look Good Feel Better program, which helps women manage the appearance-related effects of cancer and its treatment. Women who register for the VICHY Best Health Challenge can also purchase a limited-edition kit (valued at over $150) for only $50. These exclusive kits will offer women a variety of inspiring and useful tools to assist them while participating in the Challenge from the comfort of their own home, plus a charitable tax receipt since $20 from the sale of each kit will be donated directly to Look Good Feel Better.
The VICHY Best Health Challenge is committed to helping make a difference in the lives of Canadian women.
