Staying active during the cold winter months can be difficult, which is why LincolnHealth and 5-2-1-0 Let’s Go! Lincoln County are challenging community members, schools, and groups from local organizations to participate in the 15th annual Winter Physical Activity Challenge.
Last year it was “Dashing to Denmark,” and this year, the challenge is “Jumping to Japan.”
This winter challenge is a seven-week event in which participants are physically active at least 30 minutes four times a week, or an equivalent amount of time, in order to reach the goal of “traveling” to a distant location.
One can exercise alone or get a team together and exercise with friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors. Walking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, swimming, yoga, and more — all types of physical activity qualify.
The challenge will run from Monday, Jan. 8 to Friday, Feb. 23, and many indoor locations will be made available again this year for participants to walk safely for free.
Registration is required to participate. The cost is $3 per person for adults, and $1 for children age 17 years and younger. A special group rate is available for schools, child-care, and after-school sites. Everyone’s participation is welcomed.
For registration forms or more information, contact the LincolnHealth Education Department at 563-4540 or email email@example.com as soon as possible.
