Online Scavenger Hunt!

The week 5 Kenko challenge involves an online scavenger hunt. This will accomplish two objectives. First it will get you familiar with this exciting new resource. Secondly, it will give you valuable information about your own health and wellness.

The solutions to the scavenger hunt items will be found all over the Healthy Shelby County website. You may have to follow a link to complete some fo the challenges however. (hint, there is a handy little search tool at the top of the RH column if you can’t find the item)

You do not have to be participating in the Kenko Challenge to benefit from this Scavenger Hunt however, so please, play along and most of all, learn what is available on this website for your Health and Wellness.
