GCI Wellness Challenge
Join the challenge from September 1–30, 2022

As we head into colder months in Alaska, it’s important to remember to take care of ourselves and our mental wellness. GCI is here to help! Join our effort to help build healthier communities by joining the GCI Wellness Challenge. Through this virtual challenge, participants will help raise awareness about mental health issues and be reminded to take care of themselves.

GCI wants to make sure Alaskans are supported, connected, and staying healthy. It’s an important effort, as Alaska’s suicide rate is more than twice the national average. The rate is even higher in rural Alaska.

The GCI Suicide Prevention Fund supports organizations across Alaska to reduce rates of suicide and promote mental wellness and strengthened communities. 

Every year, GCI contributes $100,000 to nonprofits to support their work on prevention and mental health awareness.

The GCI Wellness Challenge will raise awareness about managing your mental health and taking care of ourselves and each other.

Participants are challenged to complete the wellness activities below. Everyone who completes all four challenges will be entered to win a tech prize from GCI.

  1. Run or walk a 5K, or bike a 10K.
  2. Check in with a friend by video or phone call to see how they're doing. Let them know how you're doing. Texting doesn't count.
  3. Cook a healthy meal for yourself and/or your family.
  4. Treat yourself to one self-care activity for a minimum of 30 minutes.

At the end of the challenge, we’ll give away three prizes:

  • Apple AirPods Pro ($249 value)
  • Apple iPad 128GB ($559 value)
  • Apple Watch Series 7 GPS + Cellular ($499 value)

Together, we can support our fellow Alaskans and help reduce the rate of suicides in our state. We hope you’ll join us.
