Getting Youth Healthy in 2014

Live Healthy Iowa Kids offers wellness initiatives for schools and youth organizations

Ames, IA - Is your school or organization looking for an opportunity to build a culture of wellness in 2014? If so, Live Healthy Iowa and Live Healthy Iowa Kids have the perfect opportunity for you! Both programs are preparing to kick off their annual 10 Week Wellness Challenge.

The kids and adult 10 Week Wellness Challenges run at the same time and have the same general concept; however, they track a few different things. The adults will track their activity minutes and/or their weight loss ($20/participant) and the youth will be tracking their activity minutes throughout the entire 10 weeks and during two-week time periods, they will be tracking their fruits, vegetables, milk, water and screen time minutes.

The challenge is free for all youth and Live Healthy Iowa Kids is proud to offer weekly motivational emails, an online team tracking page, opportunities to win incentives during and after the challenge and access to many online resources. At the end of the challenge five teams will be awarded with cash prizes for their school's PE/Health department; 1-$1,000 and 4-$500.
