Welcome to the 200 Miles in 200 Days Healthy You Fitness Challenge. Cary Medical Center is working with Townsquare Media and other local sponsors to improve the health of the communities we serve. Cary’s Vision is ‘We aspire to create a healthier community’. 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, balance and even reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s disease. We hope that by participating in the 200 Miles in 200 Days Challenge you may incorporate a daily walk into your lifestyle.
The 200 miles in 200 days challenge begins Saturday, May 13th and ends Friday, November 29th.
If you are one of the first 100 people to register for the Challenge, you will receive a free pedometer and glow light wrist band. If you register by June 16th you will have a chance to win two tickets to the Rod Stewart/Cyndi Lauper Concert in Bangor on July 14th. To be eligible for these and other great prizes you must log your miles at the end of each month during the challenge. You can log your miles online or create your own tool to track your miles and email your total miles every month to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call in your total miles to 498-1112, just leave a message with your mileage for the month, along with your name or you can mail your monthly total miles to: Judy Holmquist, 163 Van Buren Road, Caribou, Maine 04736. To qualify for the Grand Prize, ‘to be determined’ you must meet the 200 miles in 200 days challenge. You must register for the challenge no later than September 30th, earlier registration gives you the chance to win great prizes. Remember you must ‘Officially’ log your miles at least once per month.
We will be sending out, routinely, health tips and motivating messages to keep you moving and we will be having drawings for Townsquare Media t-shirts, and other prizes.
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 on line and on our Facebook page (with your permission of course). So, Register Now and receive your free gifts and get that great feeling that comes from just moving. Good Luck and start walking for the Health of fit.
