PRESS RELEASE - For Immediate Release - Granville, NY, December 21, 2020
Hicks Orchard Announces January “Apple-a-Day” Challenge

Beginning January 1, 2021, Hicks Orchard in Granville, New York, is hosting a month-long Apple-a-Day Challenge to help people stick to their New Year’s Resolution to get healthier. The challenge will include eating an apple a day as a reminder to stay the course with a healthy diet. The orchard will also post daily health and wellness videos on their Facebook page. Some of the videos will be live, featuring certified personal trainers, fitness instructors, sports massage therapists, nutritionists, yoga practitioners, and even a licensed clinical social worker to help with goal setting and staying motivated.

Dan Wilson, owner of Hicks Orchard and a long-time runner and cyclist, said, “At Hicks Orchard, we know growing quality apples requires healthy trees. Our bodies are like trees. The fruits of a healthy body are feeling better, looking better, and having more energy to do the things we want to do. Healthy bodies mean spending less time and money at the doctor’s office, too.”

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away” is an old saying. Apples are one of the top five fruits recommended by nutritionists. They are packed with antioxidant nutrients and vitamins A and C. The sugar content of an apple can stave off cravings, and the fiber is helpful for weight loss. Apples also have a long shelf-life and are easy to pack and go.

Anyone can sign up for the Apple-a-Day Challenge when they visit the store at 18 Hicks Road in Granville or by using the Google form posted on the Hicks Orchard Facebook page and website (www.hicksorchard.com). There is also a downloadable challenge calendar to help people stay motivated.

The kickoff for the Apple-a-Day Challenge will be a live Zoom event on Friday, January 1, 2021 at 2:00 p.m.(EST). The month-long challenge will end with a socially distanced, 3-mile walk in the orchard on Sunday, January 31st. Commemorative long-sleeve athletic shirts will be on sale for all challengers, with a portion of the proceeds to go to Backpacks for Hunger Program, a program that helps feed students in the Granville School District.

Local health and wellness professionals are invited to participate in the challenge to help promote their services. For more information, contact David Garvoille, Hicks Orchard’s Business Development Manager at davidgarvoille@gmail.com or 518.642.1788.
