WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS EVENT?

The Hinds County Employee Wellness Program is designed to provide community resources, education and programs that encourage County employees to make healthy lifestyle choices, which will serve to strengthen the existing culture of health, leading to healthier, happier and more effective employees.

The HC Employee Wellness Program enhances employee health by:

  • Fostering interest in & encouraging employees to lead healthier lifestyles
  • Providing diverse wellness programs to meet a wide range of personal health needs
  • Decreasing absenteeism due to illness and stress
  • Developing a positive work culture focused on celebrating & improving the quality of life for all employees

Plus, we just thought it would a lot of fun to get out and walk together!

IS THIS EVENT ONLY FOR HINDS COUNTY EMPLOYEES?

Not at all! Hinds County employees have family members and friends whom they care for and love. The larger our employees' support circles are the more likely they will succeed at living healthier lifestyles.

We also care about the quality of life and well-being of each and every Hinds County citizen. So we decided to include everyone in on all the fun.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO REGISTER?

Registration is FREE and can be completed online at www.hindscountyms.com or you can pick up a form at any local Hinds County Office. The first 100 runners/walkers to register by April 8th will receive a free t-shirt.
