  What is Well City Fond du Lac?
Well City is an initiative based around WELCOA's Well-Workplace Award, designed to engage entire business communities in improving the health and well-being of their workforce. Fond du Lac business and community leaders have come together to engage in Well City Fond du Lac to help make the Fond du Lac workforce one of the healthiest in America by developing and delivering results-oriented, evidence-based health promotion programs at their worksites. The Well City Fond du Lac initiative will be a three-year journey resulting in no less than 20 Fond du Lac area employers  achieving Well Workplace designation.
