This summer the Forest County Coalition on Activity and Nutrition (CAN!) is sponsoring three challenges to Forest County residents and visitors to the area. Our 2nd annual 100 Mile challenge, challenges you to walk, run, or stroll 100 miles between June 1st and August 31st, can be logged on our walking challenge log, which is available to download at www.forestcountycan.org. Those who complete 100 miles or more will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card and will also be added to our 100 Mile Club list of all people who completed the challenge.
This year, we’ve also added a physical activity challenge which allows anyone, at any fitness level, to be active for at least 30 minutes a day. Children and young people are encouraged to aim higher by spending at least 60 minutes per day being physically active.
The physical activity challenge is a great way to get active by picking any activity that fits into your lifestyle: gardening, walking the dog, weightlifting, biking, yoga or playing a game of pickleball. The physical activity challenge log can also be downloaded at www.forestcountycan.org.
Finally, don’t forget about our Geocache challenge that combines treasure hunting, Forest County trails and technology. The first 50 participants that complete the challenge and turn in their log sheet will receive a goody bag of local prizes including a wooden key chain designed and fabricated by students in the Wabeno School District’s fab lab (pictured below).
Together our coalition hopes to promote active lifestyles to both residents and summer visitors to Forest County. Challenge yourself and invite a friend to join with you.
