The latest Better Us Challenge has started, we encourage you to join in now!

The second Better Us Challenge of 2021 is RECONNECT and began on June 7. RECONNECT will have activities centered around families, and provide activities for parents, children, grandparents, and anyone else in your household to enjoy together!

This four-week challenge encourages you to move for at least 20 minutes and day, five days a week. Weekly themes will also determine what types of activities will happen, including group exercise classes, cooking demos, and more. We also provide resources like a downloadable activity tracker and a Better Us Challenge Facebook group to help you stay engaged. We invite you to partner with us on this journey—after all, a better community starts with a better us!
