Health Challenge FAQ

What is a Health Challenge?

A health challenge is an email based, self paced program that focuses on one aspect of health and wellness. They are designed to challenge your current state of wellness in areas such as nutrition, physical activity, stress management, financial wellness, etc. by setting and achieving goals. They are typically one month long, starting on the first day of the month and ending on the last day of the month. However, there are challenges that run longer than one month.

Why should I participate in a health challenge?

There are many reasons to participate! Many past participants have used our health challenges to jumpstart their personal wellness goals of weight loss, increasing physical activity, and improving nutrition habits. The challenge helps to motivate participants and provides them with recipes and resources to achieve good health.

If that's not enough reason for you, there is a prize drawing! If you meet the goal for the challenge, and report your success in the final online survey, you are entered into a drawing for one of several prizes that we give away. Each prize is valued at about $10!
