The 2023 FREE community Get Moving Challenge will begin April 16 and run till May 27. Our focus this year is on Heart Health. Anyone of any fitness level may participate in the challenge as an individual or as part of a team for accountability and support.
Track your minutes of physical activity each week and submit them to McDowell Wellness Center and you will be placed in a prize drawing. Everyone who submits at least 5 weeks of activity minutes will receive a free Get Moving t-shirt, thanks to our generous sponsors.
You will receive weekly newsletters which will feature heart health information as well as recipes and updates on the challenge.
This year, we will have a kick-off event on Sunday, April 16 from 2-4 pm which will feature a health fair with blood pressure, height, weight, BMI and stress level screenings and information about heart health. An RN, a registered dietitian and other professional staff will be available for questions and the HOSA Club from Boyle County High School will co-sponsor the event. There will be some freebies and healthy snack samples as well.
Any non-members who attend the kick off event may also sign up for a special 2-1/2 month membership at McDowell Wellness Center for $50. This is for any membership: individual, member + one, and family.
The Health Fair Kick-Off Event will also include fitness class demos that you can participate in according to the following schedule:
