Live Healthy Iowa's annual 10-week wellness challenge will be starting soon and the Mahaska Wellness Coalition wants everybody to get involved.
Live Healthy Iowa is part of Governor Branstad's initiative to make Iowa the healthiest state in the country. The 10-week challenge is designed to help Iowa start the year out on the right foot, by encouraging people to get active.
"The majority of our larger employers participate. We're also reaching out to some of our smaller employers and asking them to participate. Last year, Mahaska Health, Clow, Oskaloosa School District and Musco all ranked in the top employers across the state for employee participation," says Dawn Collins of the Mahaska Wellness Coalition.
