In countdown to the one-day ‘health for happy’ GWD event on the 13th as it rallies for global wellness every day, BSC will launched a robust ‘I SAY YES’ social media campaign and contest on Facebook and formed a team of its fitness, spa, lifestyle, recreation and culinary leadership to offer a ‘road show’ for wellness visits at employers, large and small; lifestyle, health and wellness partners; nonprofits, youth organizations, summer camps and City agencies. Suggested organization programming can range from employee or membership workshops with expert speakers, lunch and learns, fitness meets (swimming, running, biking) and competitions
to healthful cooking classes and demonstrations and social media tip sharing, etc.

Belgin Aksoy, GWD founder and Richmond International creative director shared that “Global Wellness Day is meant to be a journey of self-discovery during which participants can find they can change ‘every day’ of their life. The fundamental purpose of the day is to make us aware of the value our lives. Even if it’s just one day a year, to make us stop and think, to get away from the stress of city living and our bad habits, and thereby find peace within.”
“Serving as the primary champion of the Global Wellness Day social movement for the Boca Raton community has been a natural fit for us as is evident in all we do and stand for at Broken Sound Club as a leading steward of healthy living,” noted John Crean, CCE, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer at Broken Sound Club that offers Club members on-site physical therapy, nutritional counseling and health seminars in partnership with Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “So pleased to partner with other Boca healthy living proponents in this international well-fest, including Waterstone Resort & Marina, Boca Raton Regional Hospital and Boca Raton’s Promise.”
