Winterize Your Hike challenge returns
If the pandemic left you feeling cooped up and sluggish, now’s your time to regain your vigor and work off those holiday pounds.
This month, Asante Health Promotion kicks off a 10-week Winterize Your Hike challenge, which encourages a variety of outdoor activities, with a prove you move component and three in-person hikes led by the Health Promotion team. The in-person hikes will take place promptly at 11 a.m. on Jan. 21 (Prescott Park in Medford), Feb. 18 (Josephine County area) and March 18 (hike TBD). Health Promotion will provide you with details and locations when you register.
Each outdoor activity includes an entry into a random quarterly drawing for prizes valued at $100, whether you attend in person or submit a “prove you move” activity equal to a 5K.
The in-person hikes will have an added opportunity to win an additional prize. You must register in advance by emailing Asante Health Promotion, and be present at the end of the hike.
Participants may take part in as many or as few events as they like, but the more outdoor activities completed the better the chances to win prizes.
On the weeks Health Promotion isn’t leading a hike, participants are encouraged to arrange their own outdoor activities. If you submit details and photos of your group, you can get credit toward the challenge’s prize drawings. Registration begins Jan. 9 and continues up to the final hike on March 13. You must pre-register to attend the organized hikes.
To register, email Asante Health Promotion. You must complete a liability release and medical clearance form before you may participate. Friends and family need their doctor’s consent to participate. After pre-registration, participants will receive an email with the dates, times and locations for each event.
