100 Miles in 100 Days
River Valley Healthy Communities has had recent success helping to increase the level of physical activity of our community in the challenge 100 Miles in 100 Days. January 2010 has seen 106 participants with ages ranging from 18-25 and one participant in the 76-85 age group.
The challenge happens in January and June and runs for 100 days. There are no set
parameters for the challenge with the exception to be active. It comes complete with a log sheet and conversion charts for alternate activities such as hiking and skiing. The conversion charts turn these activities into steps and miles to help get to that 100 miles goal.
Please join us and walk your way to healthy!
