Live Healthy Iowa has a busy fall ahead! Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, The Next Step Challenge and Fall Fitness Day are just around the corner. We are also excited to announce an addition to our 2013 challenge lineup – the Healthy Families Challenge! In this new and exciting challenge, we are bringing together youth and adults as everyone learns about making healthy choices and being active each day. The Healthy Families Challenge begins September 23rd and you can register your family now at http://www.livehealthyiowa.org.
Similar to other Live Healthy Iowa challenges, you will sign up with a team – however this time, your team will be your family! Your family can include up to 10 household residents, including at least one adult and one child. Together you will compete in weekly challenges focused on nutrition and physical activity habits. The team captain will report your family’s weekly challenge completion on your team’s dashboard on the Live Healthy Iowa website.
Registration for the challenge is $25 per family and participants will receive a resource kit which includes a team packet, activity ball and a 2014 ‘Healthy & Homemade meals’ calendar; fun weekly educational lessons; a team tracking page and access to healthy recipes and wellness information on Live Healthy Iowa’s website. All families who complete the challenge will win a Subway gift card and have the chance to win additional prizes such as passes to an Iowa ski spot, a Des Moines family getaway and gift cards!
What are you waiting for?! Register your family NOW at http://www.livehealthyiowa.org!
