A pot, some soil, water, and a handful of seeds can turn into a sustainable source of healthy, convenient food on a budget. On Wednesday, St. Catherine Hospital partnered with a Lake County Master Gardener and Purdue Extension wellness coordinator and the City of East Chicago Parks and Recreation Department Greenhouse and Aqua Garden manager to demonstrate that process and help community members start eating healthier.

With the holidays over and the new year right around the corner, many people are embracing the common phrase, ‘New year, new me’ and the annual tradition of forming New Year’s resolutions. For many, that means tackling their physical health and making positive changes to improve their physical wellbeing. Here in Northwest Indiana, there is no better way to do that than with the Pure Fat Loss Challenge, which held its annual kick-off event Thursday evening at Avalon Manor.
THE PURE FAT LOSS CHALLENGE (the PFLC) is a fun, unique and challenging 12 week, (starting January 1st) high accountability program designed to support, teach, lead and guide those who are serious about shedding their unwanted body fat. Most people find it fun being part of a team of motivated people all working towards the same goal. This program has been successful for people who have weighed close to 500lbs as well as individuals who didn’t even want to shed fat, but rather to build muscle so they could compete in light weight division body building competitions. Everyone, from teenagers to seniors and men and women, has had success with the PFLC!

September 23 turned out to be one terrific day. It started with a cool morning and continued into a bright, sunny day with a light breeze and 72 degrees. Not a bad start for the 10th Annual Bike Michiana for Hospice (BMFH) and the 33rd Annual Walk for Hospice. This year saw two exciting changes to these signature fundraisers: it was the first time the events were held on the same day, and it was the first time the bike event started and ended at CHC’s Mishawaka Campus, adjacent to Central Park.
