Did you know February is Heart Health Month?

Let’s get your heart pumping with a FREE community challenge “Miles for your Heart. Over the month of February we encourage you to track your miles; whether you run, walk, bike, take a fitness class, or just move your body. The goal is to complete the 56 miles to cover the boundary of the Thompson Rivers Parks & Recreation District. This virtual challenge can be done from any location! Track your miles and and turn in your log at the end of the month to be entered to win a prize.

Miles for Your Heart: Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to log every day?

No, you can log up to three days in one submission, and can enter them as you complete the activity or wait and do the whole week at once. 

What kind of activity counts?

Anything! The goal is to make healthy movement a habit. Walk the dog, take a class, jog the stairs at lunch, or play soccer in the yard with the kids; any kind of fitness is good for the mind and body, so it all counts! We also highly recommend checking out our fitness classes or stop by our cardio room at the MAC! Count your miles (if your run, bike, swim or walk) as is. All other activities count as 5 miles for 1 hour of movement. 

What do we win?

Everyone who hits 56 miles will be entered in to a drawing for an Apple Watch.
