Gundersen Health System's annual community physical activity challenge, Minutes in Motion, will kick off on April 1st and runs through May 12th this year. Join this free, six-week physical activity challenge on your own or form a team with your family, friends, co-workers or classroom.
The goal of Minutes in Motion is to be active for 30 minutes each day throughout the challenge. Whether you are playing with your children, spring cleaning, walking your dog, or partaking in your favorite exercise class, any activity counts toward your Minutes in Motion.
Last year 4,355 people registered for Minutes in Motion, including 112 businesses and 44 classrooms with 902 students. More than 30 percent reported losing an average of 6.4 pounds during the challenge; the top three wellness improvements reported were increased energy, improved mood, and improved productivity.
Participants who log at least 210 minutes each week throughout the challenge will be entered in a weekly drawing to win a $50 gift card or other prizes
