New Year, New You 2018 Health Challenge

Pella Christian schools are partnering with local businesses and seeking the community’s participation in a New Year’s team health challenge.

Development Coordinator Frederick DeHaan tells KNIA/KRLS News they are launching the New Year, New You 2018 Health Challenge at PPI Plant One on the morning of Saturday, January 20th. DeHaan says the program includes teams of 10 participating in a group weight loss challenge for six weeks. He says proceeds benefit two projects for Pella Christian Schools — the high school’s annual Winterim program and the grade school’s Little Eagle house building project to bring affordable housing to the community.
