The Y Wellness Challenge
It’s Back & Better Than Ever!
GRAB A FRIEND AND GET MOVING! The Y Wellness Challenge is an 8-week on-going competition for teams of two. This fun challenge is designed to assist participants in achieving their weight loss goals and/or to provide motivation to living healthy and feeling great. Participants will receive points based on their physical activity and healthy nutrition that is logged through a smart phone app – the Y Healthy Living App.
The more you move the more points you receive! The contest includes the use of the Y Healthy Living App for free (click here to view the brochure), providing instant information gathered from your movements directly from your smart phone or your wearable fitness device. The app also provides you and your employees with workouts and challenges each week to keep everyone motivated and earning those points.
A kickoff meeting will take place on August 29 at 6:00 pm at the Torrington branch. The contest runs September 18-November 12. Prizes are awarded weekly!
Participate who take part in the final two events in the Y’s Grand Prix Race Series will earn additional points, moving them closer to being crowned the Challenge’s champion. The Highland Lake 10K takes place on October 7 at beautiful Highland Lake in Winsted. In addition to the 10K, the event also features 2-mile walk option and a 1-mile kids fun run.
The fourth and final race of the 2017 Grand Prix Race Series happens on November 4 at White Memorial in Litchfield in the form of the 5K Zombie Chase Challenge – a family event in which participants run for their lives (so to speak) through this course while avoiding the walking dead and their attempts to grab their flags.
