Move More Challenge begins Sept. 27

Posted

Autumn is approaching. As the weather turns crisp and refreshing, it’s the perfect time to get a little exercise while enjoying the beautiful North Carolina fall.

The beginning of fall is a great time to either recommit to fitness goals or set new ones. It provides a unique opportunity to set a routine that can carry you through the holidays and into the new year.

Being active can help you manage your weight and reduce the risk of developing chronic health conditions such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease, according to public health officials with the Harnett County Department of Public Health. Physical activity also lowers the risk of developing some cancers. Regular physical activity is one of the most important things people can do to improve their health. 

If you are looking for motivation to start being physically active, join the Harnett County Health Department’s “Fall into Fitness” virtual Move More Challenge from Sept. 27 to Oct. 24.

The “Fall into Fitness” virtual Move More Challenge is a free program that will encourage you and your family to be more physically active. You can choose to walk, jog, run, bike, hike, etc. Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. All forms of physical activity counts.

During the program, you will receive a weekly newsletter with tips and ideas you can use to move more and a physical activity log that will make it easy for you to track your activity and challenge points.

Each participant that completes the challenge will be entered into a drawing for prizes.

For more information or to register, call the Health Education Division at 910-814-6196. The registration deadline is Friday, Sept. 24.
