Wellness Challenge registration still open


Though January is behind us, it’s not too late to make a change to better your health in the New Year. If you’d like to take part in a challenge to track weight loss or exercise, you have until February 5 to sign up with a team for Live Healthy Iowa’s 10-Week Wellness Challenge.

The challenge goes from now through March 30. Teams may register in the Minutes of Activity Division, the Weight Loss Division, or both. Individuals record their stats for each division, which are then used to calculate a team’s percentage weight loss and average activity minutes. Friendly competition among teams is encouraged. Your workplace may already have a team and code to sign up.

In addition to individual health benefits through exercise, participation in the 10-Week Wellness Challenge also boosts Wright County’s “healthiest county” ranking through Live Healthy Iowa.
