2015 Humana Lifestyle Change Award Finalist

Kelly Rivard's lifestyle change is one of both body and mind. After battling an eating disorder and bipolar disorder in college, she decided to make a change. Kelly moved to Kansas City from her hometown in Illinois and lost 40 pounds by doing yoga, running and eating right. 

She's excited to continue to become a better, healthier version of herself, and is currently running at least one race a month!. She was named a Humana Lifestyle Change Award finalist at the 2015 Kansas City Heart & Stroke Walk.

Kelly has also become very active with the American Heart Association by serving as a Go Red For Women Ambassador for the local Kansas City area.
