Creating a #HealthyMadison

Random Acts of Wellness

We've all heard of a Random Act of Kindness, when you spontaneously do a kind act to help someone else. This is the same idea with a twist - an unexpected act to improve someone's health and well-being.  

Why? As Madison's community health system, we don't just want to be there for you when you're sick; we want to help our community be healthy. It's why we're partnering with organizations like Hy-Vee to encourage people to live healthier and happier lives. We're creating a #HealthyMadison one random act of wellness at a time.

Commit your own Random Act of Wellness

Help us create a #HealthyMadison - it's easy! Here are just a few ideas to get you started.

  • Take your friend (and their dog) out for a walk  
  • Bring in a healthy salad to share at the office
  • Help your neighbors tend to their garden or give them some of your garden goodies
  • Donate some nutritious items to a local food pantry
  • Secretly pick up the tab for someone else at your fitness class 
  • Organize a lunchtime stroll with your co-workers
