WellTek Subsidiary Helps Tennessee School District Lose Thousands of Pounds in 90-Day Wellness Challenge

Results Are in With 1500+ Participants and 57 Teams Competing

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) -   WellCity, Inc. (http://www.wellcity.com), a wellness-related social network and subsidiary of WellTek, Inc. (OTCBB: WTKN), today announced the latest winner of its proprietary 90-Day Wellness Challenge -- Fairview Middle School of Williamson County, Tennessee. The Challenge, which began several months ago with more than 1500 competitors participating on 57 teams from the Williamson County school district, has led to the shedding of thousands of pounds and a new school spirit fueled by 'healthy competition.' 

With a goal of promoting wellness through physical activity and proper nutrition, WellCity's 90-Day Challenge is a competitive team-driven initiative paid for by employers and corporate sponsors and hosted on WellCity.com. Teams of up to 20 compete to win cash and prizes -- and, of course, bragging rights. After logging onto the Challenge's secure social networking site, team members earn points for reportable metrics that include weight lost, inches lost, strength training, aerobic training, water intake and daily nutrition. Similar to Facebook and other popular social networks, participants create a user profile and connect with other team members, or 'neighbors,' to share healthy tips and information on the town wall and provide crucial support, motivation and accountability to one another. The Challenge also features WellCity's proprietary BOW Index-Balance of Wellness, an evidenced-based assessment of balance of mind, body and spirit.

David George, CEO and Founder of WellCity, stated, "In WellCity, our residents enjoy a true sense of community where they can find the tools, professional resources and interactive peer support essential to building long lasting, healthy habits and an enhanced quality of life. The unique thing about our 90-Day Challenge is how engaging and effective it is; the competitive aspect introduces an entirely new level of fun, focus and interpersonal accountability, encouraging everyone to try harder to beat the other teams -- no one wants to let their team down."

"We were taken aback by the overwhelming interest in and participation from teachers and school administrators in Williamson County. Moreover, we were especially impressed by the number of local businesses that eagerly stepped up to sponsor them, including Whole Foods in Franklin, Tennessee," noted Randy Lubinsky, Chairman and CEO of parent company WellTek. "With numerous 90-Day Challenges currently underway across the nation and dozens more expected to kick off within the next several months, WellCity's revenue growth potential appears to be even more robust than we had originally hoped when we acquired our controlling interest in the Company just last month."
