Somerville’s Partnership with the Innovative Health and Wellness Platform

20131206-130223.jpg

Earn rewards (like Illuminations Tour tickets) by taking care of yourself. We’re excited to announced a new partnership with the innovative health and wellness platform, “Wellcoin,” which allows residents to earn benefits
from participatin…g local businesses as rewards for healthy behaviors. Users can sign up for free at www.wellcoin.com.

Users earn Wellcoins, a virtual currency, for doing any of hundreds of healthy activities, for making healthy food choices, exercise, and yes, even indulging in a cupcake every once in a while (it does contribute to happiness, after all). Users can then redeem earned Wellcoins for rewards and services with participating local vendors, which currently include Brooklyn Boulders, Broga and Whole Foods in Somerville—and the list is growing!

To kick off the partnership, the City will raffle off a pair of tickets to the popular (and sold out!) annual Illuminations Tour, run by the Somerville Arts Council, on Saturday, Dec. 14. The tickets are valid for Mayor Curtatone’s trolley at 5 p.m., and winners will be chosen at random on December 10. To qualify for the raffle, you must be a resident of Somerville and must log at least one activity on Wellcoin between Dec. 5 and Dec. 12.
