One of our favorite things to do at GreatNews.Life is to get together with partners, community members, or organizations to share good news in a way that is fresh and exciting. That often comes through as a video! Being able to film what’s happening around us and share that with the community has been a particularly special part of 2022.

We welcomed CEOs and local leaders to the table to chat with our Founder Chris Mahlmann, we celebrated achievements across healthcare organizations, we invited females and women supporters to our annual All About the Girls event, and we did it all with a video camera and a team who loves sharing positivity to our audience. 

In no particular order, here are the top 10 videos on Valpo.Life to recap the good news in 2022!
