Prohealth Rural Health Services, Inc created the Tour de Wellness to promote healthy living practices and raise awareness of the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle. The event raises funds to support Prohealth’s health and wellness outreach programs. These programs impact the lives of more than 40,000 residents in our community each year that could be at risk for or are already living with a chronic health condition. Chronic conditions - such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes - are the leading causes of death in the United States. Chronic conditions impact one out of every ten Americans and account for 81 percent of hospital admissions, 91 percent of prescriptions, and 76 percent of physician office visits. Through health education and screenings, Prohealth is working to change this outlook.
Tour de Wellness organizers ensure each route is designed for every level of participants from the beginner to advanced cyclist. The routes are adequately staffed with bike techs, police, medics and volunteers to ensure the safety of every participant.
We encourage participants to recruit a few or a few dozen of their closest family, friends, or colleagues to join Prohealth and celebrate wellness along with raising funds for outreach programs that benefit the communities in Tennessee. It is a great way to provide a fun and safe activity for employees, while building camaraderie!
