“The annual Wing Commander’s Wellness Challenge has come to an end, and we are happy to report that this year the participation rate was the highest it has ever been!” said 4 Wing Personnel Support Programs (PSP) Fitness Coordinator Hannah Penn. “The “Buddy Break” activities focused on increasing unit morale, creating healthy competition between units, and offering opportunities for active movement and mental health breaks in the workplace.”

- 1st prize winner of Bracket 2: Wing Headquarters/Deputy Wing Command with a total of 1029 points
- 1st prize winner of Bracket 3: 4 Mission Support Squadron Replenishment Flight with a total of 630 points
- 1st prize winner of Bracket 4: 42 Radar Squadron with a total of 295 points

On August 30th, 4 Wing PSP and The Personal Insurance hosted a free lunchtime Buddy Break barbecue at the 4 Wing Officers’ Mess for members to enjoy and celebrate the success of the initiative. 4 Wing Commander Colonel Dave Turenne and Wing Chief Warrant Officer Dipen Mistry were among the guests, as well as Martin Dodd from The Personal Insurance, which sponsored this year’s challenge.
