YOUR Wellness YOUR Way

The 100 Mile Challenge is a wellness program designed to help YOU reach YOUR wellness goals. YOU are encouraged to choose activities that collect "miles" and align with YOUR goals with YOUR big goal of 100 miles of activity over 6 weeks.

What are the activities? YOU choose!

Walk, roll, read a book, bike, do yoga, hike, fitness class, drink water, lift weights, run, eat vegetables, sleep 8 hours, meditate, wheelchair basketball, adaptive tennis, participate in virtual Education Day sessions, etc. etc.

How do I get 100 miles?

Each activity counts for one mile. If you do three activities a day you'll easily reach 100 miles in 6 weeks. For example, here's what one day might look like:

• Walk/roll for one mile for exercise = 1 mile

• Drink recommended daily amount of water = 1 mile

• Eat 5 servings of fruit and veggies = 1 mile

• Meditate for 15 minutes on everything that you are grateful for today = 1 mile

AND

You'll get help along the way with the opportunity to tune into a variety of virtual classes, events, and speakers.

Check out the calendar here and register for programs--all of them if you want!
