100 Miles in 100 Days Challenge

Register Now for the 2022 – 100 Miles in 100 Days Healthy You Fitness Challenge. COVID 19 has limited our activity for more two years and now, with many more people vaccinated, we feel like it is time to get back into fitness. We still encourage participants to wear a mask if they are inside. Being outside and vaccinated should dramatically reduce your risk of getting infected. The best way to participate in the challenge is walking. Walking is truly, ‘Miracle Medicine’. Walking can reduce your risk for chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease and more. A walk every day can reduce depression, strengthen bones, improve balance and even reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s disease. We hope that by participating in the 100 Miles in 100 Days Challenge you may incorporate a daily walk into your lifestyle.

This year’s 100 Miles in 100 Days Challenge begins Monday, February 21st and ends on Tuesday May 31.st. To be eligible for great prizes, including weekly drawings and the Grand Prize a $250 VISA Gift Card (sponsored by Hebert’s Rexall Pharmacy in Van Buren), you must log and report your miles once each month during the challenge. You can report your miles online or create your own tool to track your miles and email your total miles every month to jholmquist@carymed.org. You can download and print a tracking sheet and document your miles every time you walk. You can also call in your total miles once a week to 498-1112, just leave a message with your mileage for the month, along with your name.

To qualify for the Grand Prize, a $250 Gift Card, you must meet the 100 miles in 100 days challenge. Remember you must OFFICIALLY log and report your miles at least once per month. We will also be sending out weekly health tips and motivating messages to keep you moving and we will be drawing for $25 gift certificates. These gift Certificates are provided by Sleepers of Caribou. The real prize is the benefit you will get from walking! We invite you to email us selfies of your walk, if you walk with your spouse, a friend, a pet or solo, we would like to hear from you about why walking is special to you. If you find some great walking trails let us know so that we can share. If you have never been involved in a walking program tell us about why you took the challenge. We will post your comments and photos online and on our Facebook page (with your permission of course). Good Luck and start walking for the Health of it.
