Fauquier Health Foundation Surprises Residents

Foundation representatives are out and about in Fauquier, Rappahannock and Northern Culpeper counties providing surprises for health-conscious residents

April 15, 2015—The Fauquier Health Foundation announced today that representatives are out and about in the areas of Fauquier, Rappahannock and Northern Culpeper counties looking for people doing something healthy. The Foundation has a variety of surprises including Fit Bits that they’re handing out to people they observe doing something healthy.

“It’s a combination of random acts of kindness and a prize patrol,” explained Christy Connolly president and CEO of Fauquier Health Foundation. “And it’s fun,” she added, “anything we can do to encourage people to get out in this beautiful weather and get moving.”

The Fauquier Health Foundation recently launched its Make it Happen grants program and has awarded funding to more than a dozen worthwhile projects throughout the region. From gardening to stationary bicycles, the programs are creative, educational and beneficial to overall health and well-being.

When asked if there are any mechanisms for local residents to see if Fauquier Health Foundation representatives are in their area, Connolly responded, “We’ll be posting some clues as well as winners on our Facebook page.” To see where Fauquier Health Foundation representatives have been, or for possible clues as to where they’ll be next, visit their Facebook page.
