Chicken Salad Chick to Partner with Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society in October

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

Chicken Salad Chick to Partner with Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society in October
New Savannah Restaurant to Donate 10% of Net Proceeds to LDSS every Monday in October

(SAVANNAH, GA) Chicken Salad Chick, Savannah’s newest, fast-casual restaurant concept, is excited to announce its local fundraising partnership with the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society. In coordination with the National Down Syndrome Awareness Month, Chicken Salad Chick will be raising awareness, and money, for the cause all month long. To participate, guests merely have to dine in at the new restaurant any Monday in October and Chicken Salad Chick will donate 10% of net proceeds to LDSS. The restaurant is at 7400 Abercorn St, Suite 512, Savannah, GA 31406.

The Savannah Chicken Salad Chick is owned by franchisees Tim and Kelly Paslawski, who are committed to giving back to the community that supports them. Their first endeavor in giving back is near and dear to their heart, choosing the LDSS because their close friend Lisa Chapman, has a daughter, Emily, who has down syndrome.

“Lisa and her family have been big-time supporters of Chicken Salad Chick,” said owner Tim Paslawski, “and when given the opportunity to impact something that directly affects their lives, we felt it was a great fit.”

Born In Alabama — The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in Auburn, AL in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown. Stacy quickly learned that selling a homemade recipe from her kitchen is against the law, and after being shut down by the health department, she decided to solicit the business expertise of her future husband and fellow founder, Kevin Brown. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant which quickly grew to enormous demand and additional locations. The unique concept puts an edgy twist on a southern classic by offering customers a “custom-fit” chicken salad experience, with 15 original flavors to choose from, as well as gourmet soups, flavorful side salads and freshly-baked desserts. Chicken Salad Chick has sold 85 franchises to be developed across the states of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, and North Carolina & South Carolina, and has plans to expand nationally in the coming years.

The Midtown Savannah Chicken Salad Chick, located in the Savannah Centre is their first of two Savannah restaurants, as well as another future one in Hilton Head, SC.

Healthy Savannah Supports Windsor Forest Elementary School “I Walk Event 2014”

Healthy Savannah Supports Windsor Forest Elementary School “I Walk Event 2014”

(SAVANNAH, GA) Healthy Savannah encouraged Savannah area children to walk or bike to school on Wednesday, October 8, in observation of International Walk to School Day. This global event involved communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day.

Windsor Forest Elementary School participated in International Walk to School Day by holding the “I Walk Event 2014”. A group of students, parents, faculty and staff gathered at Woody’s Skate Park at 8 a.m. on Wednesday. The group carried signs and posters as they walked down two streets to the elementary school, being led by the Windsor Forest High School Band, Flag Team and Chatelaines. Community partners who participated included: Safe Routes to School Georgia, Safe Kids and Healthy Savannah.

“Walking or bicycling to school can be fun as well as feasible,” said Paula Kreissler, Director of Healthy Living and Community Development, Healthy Savannah and YMCA of Coastal Georgia. “For families who live close enough to their schools, walking to school can be a time for students and parents to spend some quality time with each other. They can also get to know their neighbors by forming groups to travel to school together.”

One of Healthy Savannah’s objectives is to create better conditions in Savannah for walking and biking to school. The Initiative was recently awarded $150,000 in grant funding from the Healthcare Georgia Foundation (HGF) Childhood Obesity Prevention Program to assist in furthering its goals of making Savannah a healthier place to live. The organization’s top three goals include the passing of the Complete Streets ordinance and completion of the Truman Linear Park Trail. The third objective, which encourages walking and biking to school, focuses on public education and improvements to bike paths and sidewalks leading to and surrounding neighborhood schools.

“While walking or biking to school is a healthy activity, parents should also take steps to ensure it’s a safe activity,” Kreissler cautioned. “Walkers and bicyclists need to wear bright clothing, with bicyclists wearing helmets, and be aware of and observe the rules of the road. Parents should also consider forming walking school buses and bike trains with other parents and community members.”

Walking school buses are groups of children who walk designated routes to school under adult supervision, sometimes picking up kids along the way just like a bus. Bicycle trains provide a fun and safe way for students to bike together in a group.

“Studies show that students who walk or bike to school can improve their health and start their day more focused, with less restless energy,” Kreissler added. “And parents who accompany their children have the added benefit of increasing their own health benefits as well.”

Walking school buses are groups of children who walk designated routes to school under adult supervision, sometimes picking up kids along the way just like a bus. Bicycle trains provide a fun and safe way for students to bike together in a group.

The National Center for Safe Routes to School suggests these ways for students, parents, families and schools to participate in International Walk to School Day:

  • Walk or bicycle from home: Students and families who live close enough to walk or bicycle to school on a route that’s appropriate for these modes might join other families and form groups in their neighborhoods to travel to school together. This is the essence of Walk and Bike to School Days.
  • Designated starting points: Families who live too far to walk or bicycle, families with limited routes for walking and bicycling, bus riders and children with disabilities could identify one or more locations where students and their families could gather to walk or bike to school together or where families can park and make their way to school when they’re ready.
  • Walk or bike at school: Students who live too far to walk or bicycle, those with limited routes for walking and bicycling, bus riders and children with disabilities can walk at an assembly, during recess or as part of a class activity.

“Studies show that students who walk or bike to school can improve their health and start their day more focused, with less restless energy,” Kreissler added. “And parents who accompany their children have the added benefit of increasing their own health benefits as well.”

Bert Tenenbaum to Speak at Upcoming Enmark Encourage Health Lecture Series

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

(SAVANNAH, GA) On Tuesday, October 28, Bert Tenenbaum will talk about “Corporation’s 5 Waypoints on their Journey to Wellness” as the last lecture in the Enmark Encourage Health Educational Series 2014. Tenenbaum is the Corporate Director of Wellness at Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co., parent company of Chatham Steel. Proceeds from this lecture will go to the YMCA of Coastal Georgia.

Prior to taking the position with Reliance, Tenenbaum served as president of Chatham Steel for almost 10 years. The corporate wellness program at Chatham Steel garnered much public attention. It was so successful, Chatham Steel’s parent company, Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co., asked Bert to implement and run Reliance’s program nationwide.

“Since the late 1940s, companies have been offering healthcare to employees as a benefit. The cost of healthcare has skyrocketed over the past 20 to 30 years. Those of us in business have to manage our costs. Healthcare costs have become an increasingly bigger piece of the cost of doing business, at least for those who continue to offer healthcare as a benefit,” said Tenenbaum.

Tenenbaum’s lecture will discuss the important elements of what makes a successful wellness program. Some of his topics will cover the importance of company culture, management of costs, demographics and its impact on medical spend, employee lifestyle coaching, activities and incentives. In addition, the importance of health care benefit plan design, including prescription medication, will be discussed.

Tenenbaum said, “As we all know, it doesn’t take much to get hit between the eyes with something regarding healthcare in this country. The reason healthcare is such a big issue, not only for businesses but for the country itself, is that if you look at the cost projections, they are literally going to make quality healthcare much less affordable for business and individuals.”

This Enmark Encourage Health presentation will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Auditorium of the Savannah Morning News, located at 1375 Chatham Parkway in Savannah. Lunch and lecture tickets are $20. Checks should be made payable to the benefiting charity for this lecture; YMCA of Coastal Georgia. To purchase tickets, contact Susan Lindsey at 912-354-5480.

The YMCA of Coastal Georgia will also be raising funds on Saturday, October 25 at the Enmark Station located at 7406 Waters Ave from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. During this “Enmark Dollar Day” there will be opportunities for YMCA of Coastal Georgia to receive $1 for every car wash, $1 at their charity table and $1 donations will be accepted at the Enmark cash registers.
