This is my second year participating in Elf for Health and I’m enjoying it even more than last year! Elf for Health is a 4-week challenge program that began on November 25th and goes through December 22nd. Lindsay from The Lean Green Bean and Elle from nutritionella have spent I don’t know how much, but it must have been a LOT, of time coordinating inspirational and motivational challenges.
The Elf for Health challenges encourage participants to try new activities, reach for things that were once thought to be unattainable, help those in need, give back to the local community, implement organizational strategies, and various other health-related tasks. But most importantly, the challenges foster a supportive community where women (and men) can connect with others who share similar passions and/or struggles. The interactions begin virtually, but oftentimes develop into real life friendships.
