Group Health exists to improve the health and well-being of our members and the communities we serve. As a responsible employer and a not-for-profit organization, giving back to the community is part of our social mission. We encourage our members and staff to engage in their own health journey and offer support for staff who volunteer their time and expertise in the community.
Our community involvement falls into several categories:
Group Health Fitness Network
Group Health's annual partnership with community organizations includes sponsorship of a variety of fitness events and also summer camps for kids. For the first time, information and links to registration for all of these events and camps is in one place.
The Fitness Network is an outgrowth of Group Health's commitment to support members and staff on their journey to better health, no matter where they are on that path. Our No. 1 priority is to encourage and enable people to live their healthiest life.
Highlighted on the Fitness Network Web site are events such as the 29th Annual Nordstrom Beat the Bridge fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; the Dodge Rock 'n' Roll Seattle Marathon and 1/2 Marathon; and our long-term signature sponsorship of the Group Health Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic. Events span the state from Puget Sound to Spokane and include bike rides, triathlons, walks, runs, and more with many suitable for adults and kids.
Activities just for kids include Sounders FC soccer camps, Pacific Northwest Ballet summer workshops, and Seattle Storm basketball camps.
A limited number of discounts for Group Health members and staff are available for many of the events and camps. Members and staff also are eligible for discounts on fitness-related products. As the Fitness Network expands in the coming months, you'll find more and more reasons to visit, including nutrition and training tips, incentives to continue your healthy behaviors beyond the finish line, and a community of support.
