Build Healthy Habits During the May 1-28 Step to it Challenge

Via an April 4 e-newsletter from Hennepin County:

Registration is now open for Hennepin County’s Step to it challenge, a physical activity program that encourages people of all ages and abilities to become more active. 

The challenge is free and runs May 1 - 28. Participants log their activity on the Step to it website. Almost any activity counts, and everyone who registers is eligible to win prizes.

While the challenge is about getting active, having fun and connecting with others, it also includes some friendly competition between communities.

This year, 23 communities will compete to win trophies for most active community, most active residents and most actively engaged community. The top steppers from each community will receive free Minnesota Twins tickets and recognition on the field at a Twins game.

Elementary schools with the most registered participants will win a visit from a Twins player, conditioning coach and TC Bear. Prizes are also available for workplaces and organizations providing services for adults with disabilities.

Residents can learn more and register for the challenge at
