Live Healthy Iowa’s challenge, ‘The Next Step’, kicked off two weeks ago with Iowans stepping up to better health. 906 teams are registered in the second year of the Challenge.
The Next Step Challenge is made up of teams of 2-10 Iowans who participate in a friendly competition by tracking the number of steps taken each week. Team members report their weekly total every Friday throughout the Challenge on their personal online tracking page. As of today, teams have reported 356,081,237 steps equaling 178,041 miles.
If you are one of the 5,088 participants in The Next Step Challenge, we congratulate you! We hope that you are becoming aware of your activity level and finding ways to add more steps throughout your day. You will soon find this conscious effort turn into habit and will begin to feel more energetic, an improved mood and a desire to make more healthy choices.
Way to go teams! Keep up the good work!
