Let’s Get Moving! ‘Be Active’ Wisconsin Community Challenge Is Back
second annual challenge pushes Wisconsin communities to get moving during March
During frigid winter days, it can be hard to snap out of hibernation mode. Getting active in the winter doesn’t necessarily mean braving the cold; it can be anything that gets your blood pumping – indoors or outdoors!
Wisconsin communities will compete to see who can log the most active minutes in March as part of the Active Communities’ “Be Active” challenge. While the suggested target is 200 minutes a week, there is no specific requirement, so you can set your own goals. Any and all community members are encouraged to join in.
The winning community will receive a trophy and the knowledge that these cold days cannot keep them down. Last year, Eau Claire ranked fourth out of 42 communities, with 102 registered participants, but this year we’re going for the gold.
Registration is $10 and includes a T-shirt. Proceeds will go to the Eau Claire Parks, Recreation, and Forestry’s Youth Scholarship fund for low-income families. To register, go to activecommunities.com and search “Be Active.”
