(Black PR Wire) Healthy is definitely happening in Miami! The Consortium for a Healthier Miami-Dade recently announced the winners of its #HealthyHappensHere social media challenge.

Launched this past May, the contest challenged participants to share their healthy habits for a chance to win a gift card to Shorty’s Bar B Q restaurant, the official sponsor of the challenge.

“We are grateful for the positive responses we received from participants of the #HealthyHappensHere challenge,” says Frantz Theodore, chair of the Consortium for a Healthier Miami-Dade’s Marketing and Membership Committee. “We hope that initiatives like these will encourage residents of Miami-Dade County to adopt, establish and maintain healthy lifestyles.”

The Consortium’s Marketing and Membership Committee selected five submissions as winners of the competition. The awardees included:

  • Pat Allen
  • Deborah La Belle
  • Esther McCant
  • Jennifer Davis-Polanco
  • Ricardo Reyes

Make Healthy Happen Miami is an initiative of the Consortium for a Healthier Miami-Dade and the Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH). PICH focus areas include tobacco and smoke-free environments, environments with healthy foods or beverages, physical activity opportunities, and prevention of chronic diseases through clinical and community linkages. The campaign includes the use of marketing and media strategies throughout the Miami-Dade local community. Make Healthy Happen Miami is a message from the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County, and is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
