Whether you are planning on getting together with friends and family for the holidays or you choose not to, either way, I'm pretty sure there'll be many desserts and treats to tempt you. When January hits, and you start regretting your "lack of willpower" and you've failed at beating the holiday bulge, you can always turn to this fun activity.

Live Healthy Iowa's 10 Week Wellness Challenge, sponsored by Iowa Food & Family Project, has opened registration for its 20th year. The Challenge, slated for January 11-March 19, 2021, encourages Iowans to make healthy choices through a fun, friendly competition.

According to a press release, the challenge is simple and affordable at just $22 per participant. Over the course of 10 weeks, teams (2-10 people) track activity minutes and/or weight loss through Live Healthy Iowa's website or mobile app. All those taking part will receive an official 10 Week Wellness Challenge T-shirt, a complimentary subscription to Fresh Pickings magazine, exclusive resources, and chances to win team and individual prizes! Challenge participants will have unlimited access to wellness content on Live Healthy Iowa's website and a personal on-line dashboard to track progress, connect with teammates, set goals, and much more.

Challenge participants also receive a 50% discount on registration for the annual Live Healthy Iowa 5K, scheduled for Saturday, May 1, 2021. More than 10 Iowa communities have already committed to host the 5K event as a celebratory conclusion to the 10 Week Wellness Challenge.

Additionally, Live Healthy Iowa is offering an early registration bonus of three weeks of additional resources to all who register for the 10 Week Wellness Challenge by Sunday, December 20th. These resources, delivered by email, will include uplifting topics to help manage end-of-the-year stresses and prepare for a successful challenge.

Registration is open now. So gather friends, family, or coworkers and register your team today on their website. Live Healthy Iowa can also assist individuals looking to join a team, and businesses, communities, or organizations hoping to register multiple teams. Contact them via email at info@livehealthyiowa.org for more details.
