A Partnership for Healthy Living
In the the spirit of cooperation and healthy living, St. Bernards and Gearhead have leveraged resources and
partnered on major health and wellness events each of them offer throughout the year, creating the “Get in
Gear” Fitness Series. All events are co-sponsored by St. Bernards Healthcare and Gearhead Outfitters.
Educate participants on healthy living | Encourage physical activity on all levels
Raise money for non-profit organizations that also promote healthy living | Improve the health in Northeast Arkansas and Southern Missouri.
Because our region has significantly high levels of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, the focus will be to significantly change the population health outcomes for these three life threatening diseases through healthy living, education and increased participation.
Education / Health Screening
Several events will have multiple components, including an educational/informational piece to increase participants’ knowledge of the importance of healthy eating, daily exercise and preventative healthcare. In addition, some events will offer opportunities for free screening of key health metrics, i.e., weight, body fat
composition, waist circumference, blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and more.
Participants will be rewarded at the end of the “Get In Gear” year. Groups rewarded will be schools, nonprofit organizations, and individuals. Prizes can be earned through participation or volunteering.
Three prize levels:
• Participation in 5 events
• Participation in 7 events
• Participation in 9 events
*Participation in all 11 events- entry into a drawing for grand prizes
Each winning group/individual will choose from reward packages. Examples include but are not limited to shoes, jackets, playground equipment, exercise/fitness equipment, free memberships, and free instruction for athletic programs.
