|HealthTrip 2009 - Go Green|
The YMCA Family Center and Altru Health System have joined forces to present HealthTrip 2009: Go Green. The community kick-off and registration is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 6, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Grand Cities Mall, South Washington St.
HealthTrip is a 114-day goal-oriented incentive program designed to help promote a healthy mind, body and spirit through regular physical activity. HealthTrip encourages not only physical fitness and fun, but nutrition, stress management and overall wellness.
This year HealthTrip will go from Jan. 9 to April 29. Each year participants track their progress on a map; the more physical activity and healthy lifestyle changes they make, the farther they get on their map and the more prizes they can earn. The program is designed to give individuals the flexibility to pick their choice of physical activity and healthy alternatives.
Anyone interested in joining HealthTrip is welcome to participate.
