Dear Larry and Jeff,

Evolving out of the Well Workplace Awards Process, Well City USA is an initiative designed to engage entire business communities in improving the health and well-being of their workforce. Furthermore, Wellness Council of Wisconsin and Wellness Council of America (WELCOA) believe in a collective vision:

 What if every workforce would offer its employees a structured health promotion program?
 What if every community would make preventive care a priority?
 What if every employee had access to reliable health information. . .America would be a healthier place.

It is evident by your submitted strategic plan and CEO commitments that the Fond du Lac business community has adopted the same common vision set forth by the Wellness Council of Wisconsin and WELCOA. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that the Wellness Council of Wisconsin formally accepts your Well City Fond du Lac application. The Well City Fond du Lac initiative will have until August 31, 2016 to achieve Well City designation.

The Wellness Council of Wisconsin, will assist your taskforce with the leadership for successful completion of your Well City initiative. We can guide and direct the process using the beliefs, vision, mission and focus shared by both the Wellness Council of Wisconsin and Wellness Council of America. WELCOA will formally recognize the initiative once Fond du Lac has achieved the minimum requirement of 20 employers representing 20% of the workforce working for designated Well Workplaces.

We look forward to working with you, the employers and the employees as the collective community works toward Well City status. You should be proud of the work you have done so far, but know the true project will begin as you implement your strategic plan.

Board President
