Wellness is a community effort in 2015
BONDURANT, IOWA – January 5,2015 – Live Healthy Iowa’s 10 Week Wellness Challenge encourages Iowans to make healthy lifestyle changes and the Bondurant Wellness Coalition urges Bondurant residents to participate. Registration for this simple, affordable and fun competition opens December 15 and the challenge kicks off on January 26.
“The Live Healthy Iowa 10 Week Wellness Challenge is a great wellness initiative, and we are encouraging all residents to participate. It is the perfect way to improve the health of Bondurant through activity, weight loss and peer support while having fun,” says Shelby Hagan, Recreation Coordinator for the City of Bondurant.
As part of the Challenge, participants form teams of two to 10 adults to motivate and support each other in achieving their fitness and weight loss goals. Each week, team members report physical activity and/or weight loss as part of a friendly competition among friends, family and co-workers on other challenge teams. Participants have the opportunity to win a 4-night tropical cruise for two, gift cards, bikes, fitness shoes and more great prizes! Each participant will receive an official challenge t-shirt, one year magazine subscription, discounted registration in one of 15 statewide Live Healthy Iowa 5K events, access to tools and resources on Live Healthy Iowa’s website and much more.
Businesses, communities and schools are encouraged to participate and compete in the Corporate, Community or K-12 Cup Challenge. Specifically, the Community Cup Challenge will engage cities, counties or regions in a healthy competition. The winner of the Community Cup Challenge will be determined by the highest percentage of people who start and complete the adult challenge in addition to participants in the kids’ version of the challenge as compared to population data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The winning community will be recognized and will receive the traveling trophy, currently held by Allamakee County.
“The Live Healthy Iowa Challenge will be great for those involved and for the community as a whole,” says Hagan.
