Live Well. Be Well.
Wellness Challenge for Appleton, Dawson, and Madison communities issued by local Healthcare Facilities.
Live Well. Be Well. The Healthy Community Challenge is your opportunity to take advantage of health & fitness knowledge & resources during a regional call to action. We all know what we should be doing to stay active and health and why it's important, but sometimes it's nice to have that extra motivation to get on & stay on track. Live Well. Be Well, is that motivation and now you don't have to do it alone!
This team-based initiative is aimed at improving the wellness of the Madison, Appleton and Dawson communities through an abundance of unique activities. By creating a supportive environment among teams, we will encourage participants to improve their overall health as well as increase camaraderie in our communities.
This is not about weight loss! If your team’s goal is for one or more team members to lose weight – great! But, many people are at their goal weight and still practice very unhealthy habits. That’s what we want to improve. This challenge is for everyone, no matter their fitness profile.
Each team consists of four team members on it. Participants of the challenge will be accumulating points by choosing from a variety of options including: volunteering, planting a garden, giving blood and doing 90-150 minutes of weekly activities. In addition participants will have an opportunity each week to gain bonus points by completing the weekly challenge. Competitors must fill out a weekly tracking sheet detailing points earned. If received by Monday at noon they will be entered into a weekly drawing to win $20 in Bonus Buck!
The challenge will run from April 1 through June 28. Live Well. Be Well. The Healthy Community Challenge provides a framework and support for individuals to evaluate their health needs, create goals to carry through the challenge and beyond, and a structure to build a healthier and more active community.
The top three teams in each community will receive a cash prize. The top three individuals in the entire challenge will also receive a cash prize. Start getting your teams together now!
