Army MWR Contest Promotes Healthy Lifestyle, Resiliency

ARMP Advertisement

Fifty-nine garrisons world-wide will participate in the “Strong B.A.N.D.S.” promotion in support of National Sports and Fitness Month in May.

B.A.N.D.S. stands for Balanced lifestyle, Actively motivated, Nutritional health, Determined to excel, Strength and conditioning. The MWR promotion is designed to energize and inspire community members to live a healthy lifestyle.

“Resiliency is about more than just emotional, Family, or social fitness,” said Darrell Manuel, Army Sports Director at the Family and MWR Command. “It all starts with a healthy body. We want to inspire our Soldiers and Families to make nutrition and physical fitness a priority.”

Each participating garrison will host a minimum of three fitness- or health- related events throughout the month. Participants will be given Strong B.A.N.D.S. wristbands that symbolize the community's commitment to a healthier lifestyle.

Soldiers involved in the Army’s World Class Athlete Program and All-Army Athletes

Program serve as ambassadors of the promotion and will be featured wearing the Strong B.A.N.D.S during National Sports and Fitness Month. The bands were made possible in part through a sponsorship agreement with Kellogg’s.

Family and MWR customers—- regardless of whether or not their garrison is participating-- have a chance to win fitness- and health-related prizes through the online “Strong B.A.N.D.S. Every Day in May Prize Giveaway.”

A fitness or health question will be posted on the All Army Sports Facebook page (www.facebook.com/TheAllArmySports) each day in May. Those who answer the question correctly will be entered into a random drawing for prizes ranging in value from $15 to $300.

The Facebook page will also list health and fitness events scheduled at each garrison.

“The real goal is to get people to commit to a healthy lifestyle, and get out and exercise,” Manuel explained. “But with the online contest, if we can get folks to start thinking about health and fitness, we’re headed in the right direction.”
