Announcing the Mammoth Step Challenge, CIDESCO International President, Anna-Cari Gund says “We all take our health for granted until sometimes it’s too late. Global Wellness Day reminds us all to look at the way we are living and to take some simple ‘steps’ to change it for the better. By bringing the membership together on this important day, we can really drive the message home on an international level. We are looking forward to a very rewarding and enjoyable day.”

About Global Wellness Day: First celebrated in 2012, Global Wellness Day was established in Turkey as the “first” day dedicated to living well, and has now been accepted worldwide. Reflecting its success, in 2018 Global Wellness Day has been celebrated simultaneously in 130 countries at 5000 different locations with different events ranging from the GWD flag reaching the summit of Mt. Everest to giving medical care to children at the Thailand and Myanmar border and visiting elderly people’s home in Brazil.
