LiveWell Colorado, a nonprofit organization committed to preventing and reducing obesity in Colorado, launches its statewide Colorado Get Movin’ Challenge to motivate thousands of Coloradans to kick-start a healthier lifestyle through physical activity.
The Colorado Get Movin’ Challenge, which is aligned with Gov. John Hickenlooper’s goal to become the healthiest state in the nation and sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, provides free online tools to encourage Coloradans to make a concerted and collective effort to being active during the month of August.
The goal is to engage in physical activity for an average of 30 minutes a day for 30 days. Anyone can participate at any level, as all the minutes tracked will contribute to the state’s accumulated total.
Registration for the Challenge has begun at GetMovinChallenge.org, where people will log their daily activity. Official activity tracking for the Challenge runs Aug. 1 to Aug. 30.
After signing up, people can easily log their time spent doing any physical activity, as well as share their progress with friends on social media. The site will aggregate the total number of minutes that Coloradans are active during the month of August.
Registrants can “get movin’” with almost any activity from, biking, or hiking, or even more simply by taking walking breaks around the office or neighborhood, dancing around the house with the family, gardening—and much more.
