CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Medical University of South Carolina and the City of Charleston are joining forces to kick off the 2016 Charleston Healthy Business Challenge.

It's all part of the goal to make Charleston a healthier place to live and work.

More than 60 businesses joined the challenge in its inaugural year, and now organizers want to grow those numbers.

Participants get free resources to help foster a work environment that focuses on four main pillars: physical activity, healthy eating, stress management and tobacco-free.

The challenge also helps businesses track employee progress over the year.

"If your employees are focused on wellness, and they have their own quality of life," Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg said, "They are more productive at work. They're more effective. They have a better attitude. It's just great for the community."
